The Line: Hanwha Eagles +110 / NC Dinos -140 -- Over/Under: 9
The NC Dinos and Hanwha Eagles meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The NC Dinos look to stay hot after winning eight of their last nine games. The NC Dinos took two of three from the Doosan Bears and are coming off a game where they scored 12 runs and had 19 hits. In their latest effort, Kim Joon-wan and Na Sung-bum combined for three hits and three RBI while Lee Jae-hak allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings of work. The NC Dinos are 12-2 during the regular season. Kim Young-gyu gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The Hanwha Eagles look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Hanwha Eagles lost two of three to the KT Wiz Suwon, and they’re coming off a game where they had nine runs and 12 hits. In their last outing, Jung Eun-won and Song Kwang-min combined for three hits and four RBI while Kim Ee-whan allowed three runs and six hits in 3.1 innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost eight of their last 12 games overall. Warwick Saupold gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The Hanwha Eagles have won four of the last five meetings against the NC Dinos, but the last 10 meetings have been split down the middle. Five of the last 10 meetings between the Dinos and Eagles have produced double-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos continue to be the most impressive team up to this point, as the pitching staff shows up daily, the offense is improving each game and they're now 12-2 through 14 games. The Hanwha Eagles have been hit or miss through the regular season and it's hard to determine which team is going to show up, as they've had some real stinkers at times.
The Hanwha Eagles have had success against the NC Dinos in recent meetings, but the NC Dinos have been far and away the best team through 14 regular season games and it's kind of ride the hot hand until it runs cold. The NC Dinos haven't let us down yet.
