The Samsung Lions and Doosan Bears meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action. 

The Samsung Lions need a victory here to snap a rough three-game losing streak. The Samsung Lions have allowed 22 runs and 28 hits in their last two games and have allowed double-digit run totals in five of their last eight games. In their last effort, Kim Dong-yeop and Kang Min-ho combined for five hits and four RBI while Kim Dae-woo allowed two runs and five hits in four innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lost nine of their last 12 games overall. David Buchanan gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.

The Doosan Bears look to complete the sweep after winning four of their last six games. The Doosan Bears have scored 28 runs in their last three games and have double-digit hits in five of their last six games. In their last effort, Oh Jae-won and Choi Joo-hwan combined for four hits and six RBI while Raul Alcantara allowed four runs and six hits in six innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won eight of their last 12 games overall. Lee Young-ha gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.

The Doosan Bears have won eight straight meetings against the Samsung Lions and 12 of the last 14 meetings. Seven of the last nine meetings between the Lions and Bears have produced double-digit run totals. 

The Samsung Lions are piling up the losses and that pitching staff is getting harder to trust by the day, allowing double-digit run totals in five of their last eight games. All of that is bad news when going up against one of the more explosive offenses in the Doosan Bears, a team that's also done nothing but erupt in this series. The Doosan Bears have also now won eight straight meetings against the Samsung Lions and most of those games have been like the first two games of this series. It's just offense on top of offense. 

Look for the Doosan Bears to complete the sweep over the Samsung Lions.
