The NC Dinos and Kiwoom Heroes meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The NC Dinos look for author win after winning three of their last five games. The NC Dinos took two of three from the Hanwha Eagles and are coming off a win where they scored 10 runs and produced 13 hits. In their last effort, Lee Myung-gi and Na Sung-bum combined for four hits and five RBI while Mike Wright allowed four runs and two hits in six innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 10 of their last 12 games overall.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The Kiwoom Heroes lost two of three against the Lotte Giants and are coming off a shutout loss where they had just four hits. In their last effort, Seo Keon-chang and Lee Jung-hoo combined for two hits while Choi Won-tae allowed one run and five hits in six innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have lost seven of their last 11 games overall.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the NC Dinos. Six of the last nine meetings between the NC Dinos and Kiwoom Heroes have produced single-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos have been head and shoulders the most consistent team in the regular season with a 14-3 record and they’re a team we’ve been backing blindly in majority of those games. The Kiwoom Heroes have been hit or miss up to this point and their lack of consistent offense makes them hard to trust from game to game. The Kiwoom Heroes have had great success against the NC Dinos, winning seven of the last 10 meetings and shutting them down in most of those games, but I’m not sure that’s good enough to bet against the NC Dinos based on the consistency over these last few weeks.
As I’ve said in numerous articles, I’m not betting against the NC Dinos until they give us a real reason to do so.
