KBO Round Up: June 17

Plus, reliever Seung-hwan Oh notched his second save in as many days firing a clean ninth inning on nine pitches with a strikeout after making some history on Tuesday with his 400th career save across his career in the KBO, MLB and in Japan.

Despite missing the last five games, he remains first in the league in home runs (13), third in on-base percentage (.442) and fifth in average (.375).
