The playoffs between the Kiwoom Heroes and the LG Twins began on October 24, with the best-of-five series coming to a conclusion this weekend.

The victors will take on League Champions the SSG Landers, who finished the regular season top of the table.

The playoff series has garnered great support in Korea with a capacity crowd of 23,750 in attendance for the first game of the playoffs at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul.

Title drought to end for LG Twins?

It is 20 years since the LG Twins made it to the playoffs; however, it has been even longer since they went all the way and won the Korean Series in 1994. Their chances look a lot better this time around after a second-place finish in the regular season.

LG pitchers Casey Kelly and Adam Plutko took first and second place in the pitching individual rankings, dominating the season with the most stable pitching power among the 10 teams.

LG finished second in the regular season this year with 87 wins, two draws, and 55 losses, with 1,325 hits, 118 home runs, and an average batting average of 0.269, showing improved performance in all areas compared to last season.

Kiwoom looking for heroic performance

The Kiwoom Heroes saw off the KT Wiz 3-2 in the previous playoff round to secure a clash with LG.

Kiwoom headed into the matchup with LG off the back of a gruelling series against KT with the series going the distance. Pitcher An Woo-jin played all five matches and, as a result, had just one rest day before heading to Seoul to face LG.

Kiwoom finished third this season, recording 80 wins, two draws, 62 losses, 1,249 hits, 94 home runs, and an average batting average of 0.252.

To defeat LG, who showed solid mound management ability this season, it seems that Kiwoom will have to perform really well with the bat. At the centre of it all, the action of Yasiel Puig, who boasts an explosive blow, is essential.

Over the regular season, the two sides faced each other on 16 occasions with LG recording 10 wins and six losses. The momentum going into the playoffs was clearly with LG who had won five of the previous six matchups with Kiwoom.
