KBO Weekly – Dominant Dinos rule over Power Rankings (ESPN)


The NC Dinos continue to make the KBO season look like a walk in Jurassic Park as they hold a firm grip on the top of the standings and our Power Rankings.

Here’s a look at what went down in the KBO last week and what we’re looking forward to this week.

ESPN’s KBO Power Rankings

1. NC Dinos: 14-3 (Last week: 1) — The Dinos keep rolling along — they haven’t lost a series this season. Jin-Sung Kang in particular has been on a tear, with four homers, 15 RBIs and a 1.428 OPS (although he’s a few plate appearances shy of qualifying among the league leaders).

2. Doosan Bears: 10-7 (3) — It was a .500 week not only for the Bears (3-3), but for Jose Fernandez, who raised his average for the season to .500 (36-for-72), closing with a 7-for-12 spurt that included a six-RBI game Friday vs. Samsung.

3. LG Twins: 11-6 (4) — LG kept its momentum headed in the right direction behind the big bat of Roberto Ramos, whose league-high seventh home run was a walk-off grand slam Sunday as the Twins overcame a 7-4 deficit in the ninth against KT Wiz.
