The LG Twins and Lotte Giants meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The LG Twins look for another victory to build on their solid three-game winning streak. The LG Twins have allowed a combined six runs and 24 hits in their last three games. In their last effort, Lee Chun-woong and Jeong Keun-woo combined for one hit and two RBI while Tyler Wilson allowed two runs and five hits in five innings of work. The LG Twins have won 18 of their last 27 games overall. Cha Woo-chan gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Lotte Giants look for a victory after winning six of their last seven games. The Lotte Giants have allowed a combined five runs and 15 hits in their last three games. In the latest effort, Dixon Machado and Ji Sung-joon combined for two hits and two RBI while Dan Straily allowed two runs and two hits in 7.1 innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 16 of their last 28 games overall. Park Se-woong gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The LG Twins are 8-1-1 against the Lotte Giants in their last 10 meetings. Each of the last eight meetings between the Giants and Twins have produced single-digit run totals.
The LG Twins have owned the Lotte Giants up to this point, so I’d assume that would be the right side to go in this contest. However, the Lotte Giants have played improved ball over the last week and we know just how hot they can stay when the confidence is flowing, as they were off to the strongest start the first couple of weeks. With all that said, I’m leaning toward the under in this game. Both the Twins and Giants pitching staffs have been dealing as of late, playing in these low scoring games and not giving up anything easy. The last eight meetings between the Giants and Twins have produced single-digit run totals, with the last two meetings producing a combined seven runs.
Give me the under 9.5 runs in the second game between these two sides.
