The LG Twins and KT Wiz Suwon meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The LG Twins look to stay hot after winning five of their last seven games. The LG Twins scored four runs in the final two innings to close the deal and they’ve allowed just eight runs in their last three games. In their last effort, Chae Eun-sung and Kim Hyun-soo combined for three hits and three RBI while Casey Kelly allowed four runs and seven runs in six innings of work. The LG Twins have won nine of their last 11 games overall. Cha Woo-chan gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.

The KT Wiz Suwon need a victory here to rebound from back-to-back losses. The KT Wiz Suwon pitching staff allowed five runs in the final three innings and have allowed 15 runs and 22 hits in their last two games. In their last effort, Jo Yong-ho and Park Kyung-soo combined for five hits and four RBI while Odrisamer Despaigne allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have split their last 10 games overall. Kim Min gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.

The LG Twins have won 13 of the last 15 meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon, including four of the last five meetings. Eight of the last 12 meetings between the Twins and Wiz Suwon have produced double-digit run totals.

The KT Wiz Suwon are coming off the type of loss that can carryover to the next game, as they had a comfortable lead and then gave it up by allowing five runs in the final three innings. Frustrating losses tend to impact the following game in baseball. The LG Twins have not only won nine of their last 11 games overall, but they've also won 13 of the last 15 games against the KT Wiz Suwon. It's been a completely one-sided affair whenever these teams meet. 

Hard not to side with the LG Twins here once again.
