The SK Wyverns and NC Dinos meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The SK Wyverns are coming off a game where they scored one run on six hits, and they’ve now lost eight straight games overall. The SK Wyverns are averaging 1.75 runs per game in their last four contests. In their latest loss, Han Dong-min and Kim Kang-min combined for four hits and one RBI while Kim Tae-hoon allowed zero runs and two hits in seven innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 13 of their last 14 games overall. Baek Seung-geon gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.

The NC Dinos have allowed three runs and eight hits in their last two games and are riding a five-game winning streak. The NC Dinos are allowing an average of one run per game in their last three games. In their latest victory, Kim Tae-goon and Park Min-woo combined for two hits and two RBI while Kim Young-gyu allowed one run and four hits in six innings of work. The NC Dinos have won nine of their first 10 regular season games. Drew Rucinski gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.

The SK Wyverns have won five of the last 10 meetings against the NC Dions, but they’ve lost five of the last six meetings overall. Nine of the last 13 meetings between the Wyverns and Dinos have produced single-digit run totals.

The SK Wyverns have lost eight straight games and are averaging 1.75 runs per game in their last four game. The NC Dinos have won five straight games and have become the best team in the league up to this point with a ridiculous 9-1 record. It's easy to forget that the NC Dinos went just 1-5 in the preseason and looked lost most of the time. Still, these are two teams in complete different form and that NC Dinos pitching staff is dealing right now.

I'm not sure how you go any direction other than siding with the NC Dinos for the sweep.
