KBO Baseball: Wednesday, May 20, 2020 at 5:30 am

TV: ESPN

The Kiwoom Heroes and SK Wyverns meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The Kiwoom Heroes look for another victory after splitting their last eight games. The Kiwoom Heroes have produced 20 runs and 31 hits in their last two games. In their last effort, Seo Keon-chang and Lee Jung-hoo combined for five hits and four RBI while Choi Won-tae allowed five runs and four hits in 2.2 innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 12 of their last 17 games overall. Lee Seung-ho gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.

The SK Wyverns need a victory here to snap a 10-game losing streak. The SK Wyverns have allowed 22 runs and 26 hits in their last two games. In their latest loss, Kim Kang-min and Jeong Eui-yoon combined for three hits and five RBI while Ricardo Pinto allowed eight runs and nine hits in 4.1 innings of work. The SK Wyverns have allowed double-digit run totals in three of their last six games. Park Jong-hoon gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.

The Kiwoom Heroes have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the SK Wyverns, which includes three straight victories. Thirteen of the last 16 meetings between the Kiwoom Heroes and SK Wyverns have produced single-digit run totals. 

The Kiwoom Heroes haven't been the most consistent team in the world, but their offense has caught fire over the last couple of games and it's an encouraging sign to get behind this club. The SK Wyverns have been fade material over the last two weeks and that's not going to change as long as they're riding a double-digit losing streak. There's also the h2h numbers that heavily favor the Kiwoom Heroes, as they've won three straight meetings against the SK Wyverns since preseason and nine of the last 10 meetings overall.

You shouldn't be backing the SK Wyverns in any shape or form with the way they're playing right now and with the losses piling up. The SK Wyverns are fade material until further notice.
