Former Phillies outfielder Aaron Altherr went 3-for-4 in the win and has a .963 OPS in his first season in the KBO with 14 home runs and 10 stolen bases. Altherr has also played some great defense and former Orioles right-hander Mike Wright will be depending heavily on him in center field. Wright is 6-2 with a 3.63 ERA and he’s put together back-to-back quality starts in his last two outings.
“Min Ho Lee has been great for LG, but Mike Wright is still a great pitcher, and the Dinos are still one of the best lineups in the KBO,” McClure told SportsLine. “While I respect Lee, I still make NC -185 with Mike Wright on the mound.”
