The Kiwoom Heroes and SK Wyverns meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action.
The Kiwoom Heroes look to keep the ball rolling after winning five of their last seven games. The Kiwoom Heroes have allowed a combined six runs and 27 hits in their last three games. In their last effort, Ju Hyo-sang and Lee Jung-hoo combined for two hits and two RBI while Han Hyun-hee allowed one run and seven hits in 7.2 innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 13 of their last 19 games overall. Jo Young-gun gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The SK Wyverns could use a feel good victory here after losing eight of their last nine games. The SK Wyverns offense has produced five or less runs in each of their last 11 games. In their last effort, Ko Jong-wook and Choi Ji-hoon combined for three hits and one RBI while Moon Seung-won allowed zero runs and two hits in six innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 11 of their last 15 games overall. Lee Geon-wook gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won 11 of the last 13 meetings against the SK Wyverns and that includes wins in five of the last seven meetings. Five of the last nine meetings between the Heroes and Wyverns have produced double-digit run totals.
The Kiwoom Heroes are playing some of their best baseball of the season right now and that pitching staff has been nothing but money over the last few days. The SK Wyverns are ice cold with losses in eight of their last nine games, and their offense isn’t showing much signs of life lately. Even with the plus money, backing the SK Wyverns isn’t all that intriguing when you see the results over the last two weeks and the offense not improving. The Kiwoom Heroes have also dominated the SK Wyverns over the years, winning 11 of the last 13 meetings.
I’ll lay the juice with the Kiwoom Heroes, as backing the SK Wyverns in their current form simply isn’t an option.
