The meeting of 3rd v 2nd was as close to a rollercoaster ride as you'll ever… Continue reading KBO observations form the 3rd week of June.
1. Are we about to see a new team reach the KBO summit soon? Despite a respectable 3 wins from 5 last week, the Kia Tigers' prolonged hold on top spot hasn't look this vulnerable for two months.
