The Kiwoom Heroes and LG Twins meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for another victory to build on their solid four-game winning streak. The Kiwoom Heroes have allowed three or less runs in each of their last four games. In their last effort, Kim Ha-seong and Park Dong-won combined for four hits and six RBI while Choi Won-tae allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have lost 11 of their last 21 games overall. Lee Seung-ho gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The LG Twins could use a victory here after losing four of their last six games. The LG Twins proceeded just three runs and six hits in their last contest, and they’ve been held to three or less runs in two of their last four games. In their last effort, Roberto Ramos and Hong Chang-gi combined for three hits and three RBI while Lim Chan-gyu allowed six runs and eight hits in six innings of work. The LG Twins have won 15 of their last 22 games overall. Tyler Wilson gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won eight of the last 12 meetings against the LG Twins, but the last four meetings have been split down the middle. Nine of the last 11 meetings between the Heroes and Twins hav produced single-digit run totals.
The Kiwoom Heroes are playing too well right now to be given an underdog price, but this matchup is all about the pitching matchup, and Tyler Wilson has three quality starts in five tries this season, and he’s allowed a combined four runs in his last 12 innings. The LG Twins are also due for a bounce back performance after losing four of their last six games. We’ve seen many times in this league where the better teams usually bounce back rather quickly, and I don’t expect much different from the LG Twins.
The Kiwoom Heroes have the edge in h2h and are playing better at the moment, but I’m still leaning toward the LG Twins in this contest.
