The KT Wiz Suwon and Samsung Lions meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The KT Wiz Suwon could use a victory here to snap a rough four-game losing streak. The KT Wiz Suwon were shutout in their last game and have scored one or less runs in each of their last 27 innings. In their last effort, Kang Baek-ho and Kim Min-hyeok combined for three hits while Bae Je-seong allowed zero runs and seven hits in seven innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have lost seven of their last eight games overall. So Hyeong-jun gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The Samsung Lions have won their last two games and have split their last four games overall. The Samsung Lions have produced 13 runs and 18 hits in their last two games and have scored five or more runs in four of their last six game. In their latest win, Kim Dong-yeop and Lee Won-seok combined for four hits and four RBI while Choi Chae-heung allowed four runs and six hits in six innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lost eight of their last 12 games overall. Won Tae-in gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The KT Wiz Suwon have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Samsung Lions, but they’ve lost three of the last four meetings. Seven of the last nine meetings have produced single-digit run totals.
The KT Wiz Suwon are probably the better team and have owned the h2h history lately, but I’m simply not laying juice with a team that’s lost four straight games and has had issues scoring runs. The Samsung Lions are playing the better baseball right now and have won three of the last four games against the KT Wiz Suwon, so they make the h2h numbers look a little better. The KT Wiz Suwon don’t deserve to be favorites based on their current form.
Give me the Samsung Lions and the more favorable price, even if it’s more of a fade from the KT Wiz Suwon than anything else.
