LG Twins at Kiwoom Heroes
KBO Baseball: Sunday, May 17, 2020 at 1:00 am
The Line: Kiwoom Heroes -150 / LG Twins +120 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The LG Twins and Kiwoom Heroes meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The LG Twins are coming off a doubleheader victory and have now won each of their last six games overall. The LG Twins allowed four runs and 15 hits in the first two games of this series and have allowed three or less runs in each of their last four games. In their last win, Park Yong-taik and Chae Eun-sung combined for three hits and three RBI while Jung Chan-heon allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings of work. The LG Twins have won nine of their last 12 games overall. Cha Woo-chan gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Kiwoom Heroes could use a bounce back win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored just four runs in their last two games and are averaging 2.25 runs during this losing streak. In their last effort, Lee Taek-keun and Lee Jung-hoo combined for three hits and three RBI while Han Hyun-hee allowed two runs and six hits in five innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have split their last 10 games overall. Eric Jokisch gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won six of the last 10 meetings against the LG Twins. Eight of the last nine meetings between the Heroes and Twins have produced single-digit run totals.
Completing sweeps aren't easy, but the LG Twins get a major boost of confidence after winning a doubleheader last night, and they've now won six straight games overall. The Kiwoom Heroes have lost four straight contests and the lack of offense is becoming a major issue, as they've averaging less than three runs per game during this stretch. While the season is still young, these teams seem to be heading in opposite directions and it's hard to find the confidence to get behind the Kiwoom Heroes in their current form.
I'll side with the LG Twins for the sweep, as they improve their winning streak to seven games.
