The Hanwha Eagles and Lotte Giants meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Hanwha Eagles have lost six of their last eight games, but they are coming off a feel good win over the KIA Tigers. The Hanwha Eagles have put together seven runs and 17 hits in their last two games, a possible sign of the offense coming along. In their last effort, Ha Ju-suk and Oh Sun-jin combined for two hits and three RBI while Jang Min-jae allowed one run and five hits in seven innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost eight of their last 11 games overall. Kim Ee-whan gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The Lotte Giants look for a feel good win after losing two of their last three games. The Lotte Giants are coming off a series loss to the Doosan Bears, but they’ve still scored at least four runs in every regular season game. In their last effort, Min Byung-hun and An Chi-hong combined for four hits and three RBI while Park Se-woong allowed three runs and five hits in five innings of work. The Lotte Giants have won 11 of their last 14 games overall. Dan Straily gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The Hanwha Eagles and Lotte Giants have split the lat 10 meetings, but the Giants have won two of the last three meetings. Five of the last 10 meetings have produced double-digit run totals.
The Hanwha Eagles are a team we've blindly faded since the preseason and one win over the KIA Tigers shouldn't change that approach considering they've still lost eight of their last 11 games overall. The Lotte Giants are a team that doesn't get much respect from oddsmakers, but they've been the hottest team dating back to the preseason and their offense has been the best unit throughout the regular season, scoring no less than four runs. These two teams have been heading in different directions from the very start.
I like the Lotte Giants to draw first blood in this series.
