TV: ESPN

The LG Twins and Doosan Bears meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The LG Twins are riding a three-game winning streak when you throw in their preseason success and their pitching staff has been dealing. The LG Twins have allowed no more than four runs in each of their last five games and they’re allowing an average of 2.8 runs during that stretch. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Yoo Kang-nam combined for three hits and five RBI while Cha Woo-chan allowed one run and three hits in six innings of work. The LG Twins pitching was solid throughout the preseason and that’s carried over to games that count, but it was the five run eighth inning that should earn attention, as explosive offense added makes this team dangerous. 

The Doosan Bears have lost their last three games and have given up five or more runs in three of their last four games. The Doosan Bears have also scored one or less runs in each of their last 16 innings. In their last effort, Kim Jae-hwan and Kim Jae-ho combined for one hit and two RBI while Raul Alcantara allowed three runs and six hits in six innings of work. The Doosan Bears were more competitive in their regular season opener than the score would indicate, but that offense needs to snap out of its funk and produce a big inning to help out the pitching.

The LG Twins have won six of the last seven meetings against the Doosan Bears, which includes three straight victories. Five of the last seven meetings between the Twins and Bears have produced single-digit run totals.

The LG Twins have played the Doosan Bears three times over the last couple of weeks and they've won all three meetings, with the average margin of victory being 2.6 runs. The Doosan Bears has gone quiet a bit over the last game and a half, and they're going up against a strong pitching effort of the LG Twins. The LG Twins were kind to us yesterday in the underdog role, so I might as well ride them again in game two of the regular season.
