The Samsung Lions and LG Twins meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Samsung Lions look for another win after losing four of their last five games. The Samsung Lions allowed one run and six hits in their last effort, and that comes after allowing nine or more runs in each of their four previous games. In their latest victory, Lee Won-seok and Kim Heon-gon combined for one hit and two RBI while Choi Chae-heung allowed one run and four hits in six innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lost six of their last nine games overall. Won Tae-in gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The LG Twins look for a victory after losing two of their last three games. The LG Twins have been held to five or less runs in five of their last six games. In their latest effort, Roberto Ramos and Chae Eun-sung combined for three hits and one RBI while Tyler Wilson allowed three runs and four hits in seven innings of work. The LG Twins have won seven of their last nine games overall. Lee Min-ho gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The LG Twins have won eight of the last 13 games against the Samsung Lions but have lost four of the last seven meetings overall. Six of the last seven meetings between the Lions and Twins have produced single-digit run totals.
The Samsung Lions are a tam we’ve faded a lot over the last couple weeks and one victory doesn’t change much, as their pitching staff has been getting rocked left and right. The LG Twins have quietly won seven of their last nine games despite not getting much respect from oddsmakers. It’s often not flashy and the offense could use some improvement, but the LG Twins find ways to win these games and the starting pitching shows up more times than not. The LG Twins have also still won eight of the last 13 meetings against the Samsung Lions.
I’m going to side with the LG Twins in this contest.
