The LG Twins and KT Wiz Suwon meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The LG Twins look to keep the ball rolling after winning eight of their last 10 games. The LG Twins just took two of three from the Samsung Lions and haven’t allowed a run in their last 12 runs. In their last effort, Chae Eun-sung and Kim Hyun-soo combined for two hits and two RBI while Lee Min-ho allowed zero runs and one run in 5.1 innings of work. The LG Twins have won 11 of their last 16 games overall. Casey Kelly gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The KT Wiz Suwon took two of three from the Hanwha Eagles but are coming off a loss where they allowed nine runs and 12 hits. In their last effort, Jo Yong-ho and Park Kyung-soo combined for three hits and three RBI while So Hyeong-jun allowed eight runs and nine hits in 5.1 innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have split their last 10 games overall. Odrisamer Despaigne gets the ball tonight for the Wiz Suwon.
The LG Twins have won 12 of the last 14 meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon, but they lost the last meeting in April, 10-3. Seven of the last 11 meetings between the Twins and Wiz Suwon have produced double-digit run totals.
The are two hot teams heading into this series, but I think it's fair to say that it's the LG Twins that are in better form, and they've been far more trustworthy in the pitching department. The KT Wiz Suwon put together a hot streak over the last week, but they've had their struggles already this season and can have real stinkers where their pitching gets rocked. The LG Twins have also dominated the KT Wiz Suwon in past meetings, making this pick a whole lot easier based on history.
Give me the LG Twins to draw first blood in this series.
