The LG Twins and Doosan Bears meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The LG Twins are fresh off a sweep of the Hanwha Eagles and have won each of their last four games. The LG Twins have produced a combined 35 runs in their last four games. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Kim Yong-yi combined for four hits and four RBI while Tyler Wilson allowed three runs and six hits in 6.2 innings of work. The LG Twins have won 22 of their last 32 games overall. Cha Woo-chan gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Doosan Bears lost two of three games to the Samsung Lions, but they’re coming off a win where they produced seven runs and 12 hits. The Doosan Bears have produced a combined 13 runs and 26 hits in their last three games. In their last effort, Choi Joo-hwan and Kim Jae-hwan combined for four hits and five RBI while Yu Hui-kwan allowed three runs and five hits in seven innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 12 of their last 21 games overall. Lee Young-ha gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The LG Twins have won six of the last nine meetings against the Doosan Bears, but they’ve been on the losing side of the last two meetings. Six of the last nine meetings between the Bears and Twins have produced single-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears are always worth a look in the underdog role because of just how explosive their offense can be and the fact they can string wins together with the best of them out of nowhere. The LG Twins continue to be one of the hotter teams in the league, and they’ve won four straight games when showing a more consistent offense during that stretch. This is going to be one of the better series heading into the weekend, but it feels like the LG Twins have an advantage in momentum and that makes them the slight favorite to start things off.
I’ll ride the hot hand here and side with the LG Twins and the reasonably cheap price.
