The KT Wiz Suwon and Doosan Bears meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The KT Wiz Suwon could use a spark of consistency after splitting their last 10 games. The KT Wiz Suwon have produced 15 runs and 26 hits in the first two games of this series and are averaging 10 runs per game in their last three contests. In their last effort, Park Kyung-soo and Mel Rojas combined for six hits and four RBI while So Hyeong-jun allowed zero runs and two hits in seven innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have lost seven of their last 12 games overall. Kim Min gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The Doosan Bears look for a victory here after splitting their last six games. The Doosan Bears have produced 13 runs and 24 hits in the first two games of this series and have scored four or more runs in five of their last eight games. In their last effort, Park Kun-woo and Chung Sang-ho combined for three hits and two RBI while Lee Yong-chan allowed four runs and nine hits in five innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 12 of their last 20 games overall. Raúl Alcántara gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Doosan Bears have won six of the last nine meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon, which includes wins in three of the five meetings this year. Six of the last 11 meetings between the Bears and Wiz Suwon have produced double-digit run totals.
Both of these teams have been hit or miss these last couple of weeks, but it’s the Doosan Bears who are playing the better baseball overall and have still won six of the last nine contests against the KT Wiz Suwon. The KT Wiz Suwon have had a much harder time stringing wins together and their pitching staff can get rocked from time to time. The Doosan Bears consistent offense gives them the edge as we head into the rubber game on Thursday.
I’ll take the Doosan Bears and the somewhat reasonable price to win this series.
