Samsung Lions at LG Twins
KBO Baseball: Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: LG Twins -170 / Samsung Lions +140 -- Over/Under: 9
The Samsung Lions and LG Twins meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Samsung Lions could use a bounce back win here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Samsung Lions allowed 10 runs and 12 hits in their last loss and are allowing 10.75 runs per game during their four-game losing streak. In their last loss, Koo Ja-wook and Lee Won-seok combined for four hits and three RBI while David Buchanan allowed 10 runs and 10 hits in five innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lot six of their last eight games overall. Choi Chae-heung gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The LG Twins look to keep the ball rolling after winning seven of their last eight games. The LG Twins have produced double-digit run totals in three of their last eight games. In their last effort, Lee Chun-woong and Chae Eun-sung combined for four hits and four RBI while Lim Chan-gyu allowed four runs and seven hits in six innings of work. The LG Twins have won 10 of their last 14 games overall. Tyler Wilson gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The LG Twins have won eight of the last 12 games against the Samsung Lions but have lost three of the last six meetings overall. Five of the last six meetings between the Lions and Twins have produced single-digit run totals.
The Samsung Lions have not only lost four straight games, but the pitching staff is getting tattooed during these losses, making them a really tough back at the moment. The LG Twins have won seven of their last eight games and the offensive production is gaining confidence by the inning, producing double-digit runs in three of their last seven tries. This feels like a bad matchup all around for the Samsung Lions, especially when you throw in the h2h numbers and the fact the LG Twins have won eight of the last 12 meetings.
I'll ride the hot hand in this matchup. Give me the LG Twins for another victory.
