The Lotte Giants look for a win after losing four of their last five games. The Lotte Giants finally broke out of their offensive funk by snapping a four-game skid with nine runs and 12 hits. In the victory, Min Byung-hun and Lee Dae-ho combined for three hits and six RBI while Noh Kyung-eun allowed four runs and five hits in four innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost seven of the last 10 meetings overall. Lee In-bok gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.

The Kiwoom Heroes look for a victory after splitting their last six games. The Kiwoom Heroes pitching staff has allowed a combined 22 runs and 34 hits in their last three games. In their latest effort, Park Dong-won and Park Byung-ho combined for two hits and four RBI while Jake Brigham allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have lost six of their last nine games overall. Eric Jokisch gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.

The Kiwoom Heroes have won eight of the last nine meetings against the Lotte Giants and 12 of the last 15 meetings. Seven of the last 11 meetings between the Giants and Heroes have produced single-digit run totals.

The Lotte Giants looked a lot like the team we were backing all season with their offensive explosion, but we have to be careful about getting back on the bandwagon after just on victory. The Lotte Giants are still a team that's been ice cold the last two weeks and has lost seven of their last 10 games. The Kiwoom Heroes have done a decent job lately of bouncing back from a loss, and they've still won eight of the last nine meetings against the Lotte Giants and 12 of the last 15 meetings as well.

The Lotte Giants still have more to prove before I consider putting money on them. Give me the Kiwoom Heroes for this contest.
