The Korea Baseball Organization is back in action Tuesday morning following the first off-day of the season. Three games were rained out on Saturday, but the league is holding off re-playing those until later in the schedule. For the time being, four teams have played six games and six teams have played five games.

ESPN announced their schedule for this week’s KBO action, once again airing one game live per week with a re-airing of it later in the day. Games will air on either ESPN or ESPN2, and stream via the ESPN App. Tuesday through Friday games are at 5:30 a.m., Saturdays are at 4 a.m., and Sundays are at 1 a.m. The Tuesday, May 12th schedule will be headlined on ESPN by the KT Wiz facing off against the NFC Dinos, with Karl Ravech and Eduardo Perez calling the game.

We’re back to the top of most of the rotations on Tuesday morning. The best pitching matchup will feature the No. 1 starter for the NC Dinos and the KT Wiz. Drew Rucinski gave up three hits and no runs over six innings for NC in their opener, while Odrisamer Despaigne gave up one run in six innings in his own debut. The run total is set at 8. That’s a low number, but if the KT bullpen doesn’t completely melt down, it’s doable.
