3-day series features Korean pitchers

Beginning today, Korean major league pitchers will step on the mound for three consecutive days.
The Texas Rangers’ Park Chan-ho will start against the Chicago White Sox early this morning (KST). Park came back from a two-month stint on the disabled list in late August, and has posted back-to-back quality starts (six or more innings pitched and three or fewer earned runs allowed) in his first two return appearances.
The White Sox’s batters will present a challenge, however. Chicago has seven batters in its lineup with double digits in the homers column, including four who have knocked at least 20 out of the park.
“I am confident and my focus has improved,” Park said. “I am not worried about the power of the ball.”
Kim Sun-woo of the Montreal Expos will be throwing against the Chicago Cubs tomorrow at 9:45 a.m., aiming for his fourth victory of the season.
Seo Jae-weong of the New York Mets will start on Thursday in a game against the Florida Marlins. Baek Cha-seung of the Seattle Mariners will also be on the mound that day against the Boston Red Sox.
