The KIA Tigers and Doosan Bears meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The KIA Tigers look for a victory after splitting their last eight games. The KIA Tigers just allowed 13 runs and 18 hits in their last game and have been outscored 17-5 in their last two games. In their last effort, Preston Tucker and Choi Won-joon combined for three hits and two RBI while Im Ki-young allowed five runs and five hits and 3.2 innings of work. The KIA Tigers have allowed double-digit run totals three times this regular season. Yang Hyun-jong gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The Doosan Bears look to stay hot after winning six of their last eight games. The Doosan Bears have produced a combined 20 runs and 31 hits in their last two games. In their last game, Oh Jae-il and Park Se-hyuk combined for five hits and four RBI while Yu Hui-kwan allowed two runs and four hits in five innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won nine of their last 14 games dating back to the preseason. Lee Yong-chan gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Doosan Bears have won five straight games against the KIA Tigers and seven of the last eight meetings overall. Six of the last seven meetings between the Tigers and Bears have produced single-digit run totals.
The KIA Tigers continue to be hit or miss and ar a tough team to figure out these days. The Doosan Bears continue to be one of the hottest teams in the league with an offense that remains red hot and is fresh off one of their better performances yet. We also have a one-sided h2h history, as the Doosan Bears have won five straight against the KIA Tigers and seven of the last eight meetings. There’s a lot pointing toward another victory for the Doosan Bears.
For me, there’s no reason to step in front of the Doosan Bears, possibly the hottest team in the league right now.
