The NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.

The NC Dinos are coming off an extra innings victory and improve to 6-1 in the regular season. The NC Dinos have scored 12 runs and produced 23 hits in this series, winning both games in extra innings. In their last effort, Kwon Hee-dong and Na Sung-bum combined for four hits and three RBI while Mike Wright allowed one run and five hits in six innings of work. The NC Dinos have scored no less than four runs in all seven regular season games. Koo Chang-mo gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.

The KT Wiz Suwon are riding a three-game losing streak and are a rough 1-6 in regular season play. The KT Wiz Suwon have allowed five or more runs in six of their first seven games and are allowing an average of eight runs per game in their last three contests. In their last effort, Kim Min-hyeok and Yoo Han-joon combined for three hits and three RBI while William Cuevas allowed one run and four hits in six innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon need to get their pitching staff in order if they’re ever going to break out of this funk. Bae Je-seong gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.

The NC Dinos have won five of the last seven meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon. Six of the last 12 meetings between the NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon have produced double-digit run totals. 

These prices aren't great and laying this much juice in baseball over the long term is going to have a negative impact. However, backing the KT Wiz Suwon in their current form isn't an option considering they find ways to lose time and time again. The NC Dinos are not only playing the better baseball overall, but they've won five of the last seven meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon. The NC Dinos have also won both games this series in extra innings, which is a serious momentum shift and plays into the mind of the KT Wiz Suwon who are already low on confidence.

I'll bite the bullet and back the NC Dinos for the sweep.
