The Doosan Bears and Samsung Lions meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Doosan Bears have lost four of their last six games and just lost two of three games to the Hanwha Eagles. The Doosan Bears have produced a combined eight runs and 20 hits in their last three games. In their last effort, Park Kun-woo and Kuk Hae-sung combined for two hits and two RBI while Park Jong-gi allowed three runs and three hits in 4.2 innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 11 of their last 18 games overall.
The Samsung Lions have won five of their last seven games and just took two of three games against the KT Wiz Suwon. The Samsung Lions are coming off a 12-0 victory and have allowed zero runs in 15 of their last 17 innings. In their latest effort, Lee Hak-ju and Lee Sung-gyu combined for six hits and six RBI while Won Tae-in allowed zero runs and eight hits in six innings of work. The Samsung Lions have won 11 of their last 17 games overall.
The Doosan Bears have won eight of their last nine meetings against the Samsung Lions, but that one loss was in the last meeting in late May. Each of the last four meetings between the Lions and Bears produced double-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears have fallen off a cliff over the last week with losses in four of their last six games, but we know how quickly their offense can get hot and turn things around. The Samsung Lions have had a hot week and have quietly won 11 of their last 17 games, but they've also been hit or miss over the course of the season and usually they struggle to string wins together. The h2h numbers heavily favors the Doosan Bears, and they not only beat the Samsung Lions in most meetings, but they get whatever they want offensively and hit them hard. There's a reason why the last four meetings have produced double-digit run totals.
I like the Doosan Bears to draw first blood in this series with a victory in game one.
