The Lotte Giants could use a win after losing eight of their last 12 games. The Lotte Giants went from pitching back-to-back shutouts to allowing 11 runs on 11 hits, and they’ve allowed double-digit runs in two of their last four games. In the latest effort, Min Byung-hun and An Chi-hong combined for three hits while Park Se-woong allowed four runs and five hits in 4.1 innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost nine of their last 14 games overall. Adrian Sampson gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The Samsung Lions need a win after losing four of their last six games. The Samsung Lions can’t find much consistency these days, but they have produced double-digit run totals in two of their last three games. In their latest effort, Park Gye-beom and Lee Won-seok combined for five hits and seven RBI while Won Tae-in allowed one run and four hits in eight innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lost 10 of their last 15 games overall. Heo Yoon-dong gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The Lotte Giants have won seven of the last 11 meetings against the Samsung Lions, but the last six meetings have been split down the middle. Six of the last nine meetings between the Giants and Lions have produced single-digit run totals.
The Lotte Giants dropped a stinker on us yesterday, but they’ve played decent baseball over the last week overall and have still beaten up on the Samsung Lions long term to where they have the advantage in this series. The Samsung Lions offense has come alive this week, but they’re still one of the more sloppier teams in this league and have lost 10 of their last 15 games overall. It’s a lot easier to trust the Lotte Giants than it is the Samsung Lions.
We’re not as high on the Lotte Giants as we were a couple weeks ago, but I’ll still back them to close out this series on a high note.
