The Hanwha Eagles and KIA Tigers meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Hanwha Eagles are starting to get desperate for a victory, as they’re riding a brutal five-game losing streak. The Hanwha Eagles have scored no more than three runs in each of their last five games and have scored a combined four runs in this series. In their last effort, Ha Ju-suk and Choi Jae-hoon combined for three hits and two RBI while Jang Shi-hwan allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have failed to win 15 of their last 17 games overall. Jang Min-jae gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The KIA Tigers are riding a three-game winning streak and are 4-4 in regular season action overall. The KIA Tigers have been up and down overall, but their pitching staff has been on point during these last few games. In their last effort, Yoo Min-sang and Na Ji-wan combined for three hits and three RBI while Lee Min-woo allowed three runs and eight hits in five innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won seven of their last 11 games overall. Drew Gagnon gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The KIA Tigers have won seven of the last eight meetings against the Hanwha Eagles and haven’t lost in each of the last eight meetings. Five of the last nine meetings between the Eagles and Tigers produced double-digit run totals.
I've said it for more than a week that the Hanwha Eagles are fade material until further notice and they continue to pile up the losses at record pace. Nothing has changed here. The Hanwha Eagles have failed to win 15 of their last 17 games overall, and they also haven't won a single game against the KIA Tigers in the last eight meetings. There's really nothing else to see here, as backing the Hanwha Eagles isn't an option.
It's odd that the KIA Tigers are priced like this given the current form of both clubs.
