The LG Twins drop to 1-1 on the season after losing to the Doosan Bears, 5-2. The LG Twins pitching staff was solid for the most part but allowed all five runs in the third inning to seal their fate. In the losing effort, Park Yong-taik and Lee Chun-woong combined for two hits and two RBI while Song Eun-beom allowed five runs and nine hits in 2.1 innings of work. Outside of one bad inning in Tuesday’s loss, the LG Twins pitching has been possibly the best in the league dating back to the preseason. Don’t let one bad inning steer you off the LG Twins bandwagon. Jung Chan-heon will get the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Doosan Bears improve to 1-1 on the season and have split their last eight games overall. The Doosan Bears have been a hard team to figure out because you’re never sure which team is going to show up, but an explosive inning does show what this club is capable of at times. In their victory, Oh Jae-il and Choi Joo-hwan combined for four hits and four RBI while Lee Young-ha allowed two runs and five hits in 6.1 innings of work. The Doosan Bears now need to put together some consistency if they’re going to be trusted. Chris Flexen will get the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The LG Twins have won six of the last eight meetings against the Doosan Bears, which includes victories in three of the last four meetings. Six of the last eight meetings between the Twins and Bears have produced single-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears have been a tough team to figure out and I try to avoid riding roller coasters without getting a feel of which team is going to show up that day. Again, outside of the third inning of their last game, the LG Twins pitching staff has been pretty solid and a staff you can get behind with confidence. I have confidence in the LG Twins ability to get outs and one poor inning doesn't force me to jump off.
Give me the LG Twins to win this series.
