Lotte Giants at Kiwoom Heroes
KBO Baseball: Sunday, May 24, 2020 at 1:00 am
The Line: -- Over/Under:
The Lotte Giants and Kiwoom Heroes meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Lotte Giants need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Lotte Giants allowed 12 runs and 15 hits in their last game and have allowed 25 runs in their last three games. In their last effort, Jeon Jun-woo and Han Dong-hee combined for two hits and two RBI while Lee In-bok allowed one run and two hits in one inning of work. The Lotte Giants have lost eight of their last 11 games overall. Seo Jun-won gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for another win after splitting their last eight games. The Kiwoom Heroes scored four runs in the first three innings and have scored seven or more runs in five of their last six games. In their last effort, Kim Ha-seong and Lee Jung-hoo combined for five hits and six RBI while Eric Jokisch allowed two runs and six hits in six innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have split their last 12 games overall. Choi Won-tae gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Lotte Giants and 13 of the last 16 meetings. Seven of the last 12 meetings between the Giants and Heroes have produced single-digit run totals.
As much as we've blindly backed the Lotte Giants since the preseason, we've made some nice money this week just blindly fading them due to an offense that's gone quiet. The Lotte Giants have fallen apart with losses in eight of their last 11 games and they're not a team I'm looking to back right now. The Kiwoom Heroes have ben hit or miss pretty much all season long, but they're playing much better baseball than the Giants and they've owned this team over the last year with wins in nine of the last 10 meetings.
I have to keep fading the Giants and side with the Kiwoom Heroes to win this series.
