The KT Wiz Suwon and KIA Tigers meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The KT Wiz Suwon look to snap a four-game losing streak after getting swept by the Lotte Giants. The KT Wiz Suwon have produced a combined two runs and 14 hits in their last two games and have been shutout in 16 of their last 18 innings. In their last effort, Kim Min-hyeok and Bae Jeong-dae combined for four hits and two RBI while Odrisamer Despaigne allowed four runs and seven hits in five innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have lost 11 of their last 16 games overall.
The KIA Tigers look to snap a three-game losing streak after being swept by the Doosan Bears. The KIA Tigers have produced a combined six runs in their last three games and have scored three or less runs in four of their last nine games. In their last effort, Preston Tucker and Choi Hyung-woo combined for one hit and two RBI while Im Ki-young allowed one run and seven hits in 5.1 innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won 15 of their last 25 games overall.
The KT Wiz Suwon have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the KIA Tigers and are 2-1 against them this year. Eight of the last nine meetings between the Tigers and Wiz Suwon have produced single-digit run totals.
It's hard to get behind either of these teams with much confidence after they were just swept in their last series and couldn't do anything on the offensive end. However, the KT Wiz Suwon have absolutely owned the KIA Tigers over the years, which includes wins in nine of the last 10 meetings, and that also includes winning the previous series this season. The KIA Tigers have played the better baseball overall these last few weeks, but they're clearly going up against a team that's had their number for quite some time. This is one of those matchup where it's probably better to ignore form.
I'll take the KT Wiz Suwon based on the one-sided h2h numbers against the KIA Tigers.
