With the month of June coming to an end, let's take a look around the league.

June KBO results

Team Wins Ties Losses %
LG 16 0 5 .762
Lotte 13 0 7 .650
Samsung 10 2 8 .556
Doosan 11 1 9 .550
KIA 10 1 9 .526
SK 10 0 12 .455
Nexen 8 1 13 .381
NC 7 1 13 .350
Hanwha 5 0 14 .263

The LG Twins were clearly the best team during the month, losing only 5 games, and never losing 2 in a row. No surprise to see Hanwha and NC at the bottom, but no one expected to see Nexen in the number 7 spot for the month. The Heroes are still in 2nd place in the overall standings, but there is still a lot of season left to play. They will need to turn things around if they want to maintain their position and make the playoffs for the first time. KIA is also a bit of a surprise here. The Tigers had their 9 game winning streak, but it's easy to forget that they only won one other game during the entire month, just barely coming in above .500.
