The KT Wiz Suwon and Hanwha Eagles meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The KT Wiz Suwon look for another victory to build on their four-game winning streak. The KT Wiz Suwon have scored no less than nine runs in their last four games and are averaging 11.5 runs per game during this winning streak. In their latest victory, Kim Min-hyeok and Kang Baek-ho combined for five hits and six RBI while William Cuevas allowed four runs and five hits in 6.1 innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have split their last 10 games overall. Bae Je-seong gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.

The Hanwha Eagles look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Hanwha Eagles are coming off a losing effort despite producing 11 runs and 11 hits. In the loss, Lee Sung-yeol and Choi Seung-joon combined for two hits and three RBI while Jang Shi-hwan allowed seven runs and eight hits in three innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost eight of their last 12 games overall. Jang Min-jae gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.

The KT Wiz Suwon are 7-4-1 in the last 11 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles, which includes a 3-0-1 since the preseason. Nine of the last 12 meetings have produced single-digit run totals, but the last two meetings have produced a combined 52 runs.

The KT Wiz Suwon have caught fire out of nowhere, winning four straight games and averaging 11.5 runs during this stretch. The Hanwha Eagles are having a hard time finding their footing, which includes losses in eight of their last 12 tries and an offense that can be hit or miss. The KT Wiz Suwon have also had the upper hand over the Hanwha Eagles, which includes a 3-0-1 record since the preseason. Having that type of success against the Eagles pitching staff in the series opener only adds to that confidence.

I have to side with the KT Wiz Suwon to keep this hot streak going.
