The NC Dinos and Hanwha Eagles meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The NC Dinos could use a feel good victory after losing five of their last seven games. The NC Dinos pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. In their last effort, Park Min-woo and Na Sung-bum combined for two hits and two RBI while Lee Jae-hak allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 23 of their last 34 games overall. Kim Jin-ho gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The Hanwha Eagles look for another victory after losing four of their last five games. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed 31 runs and 56 hits in their last five games. In their last effort, Kim Tae-kyun and No Tae-hyung combined for four hits and two RBI while Warwick Saupold allowed two runs and seven hits in 6.1 innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 31 of their last 39 games overall. Kim Min-woo gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The NC Dinos have won six of the last seven meetings against the Hanwha Eagles and seven of the last 11 meetings overall. Four of the last six meetings between the Dinos and Eagles have produced double-digit run totals.
The Hanwha Eagles have found ways to sprinkle in a win here and there over the last week and some change, but they’re still a team that’s lost 31 of their last 39 games and a club we’ve faded during this stretch and have made a ton of profit. The NC Dinos are playing their worst baseball of the season and that pitching staff isn’t getting the job done anymore, but they’re still the best team in the league and still a club we’ve made a lot of money blindly backing. We’re not going to win every game, but there’s no point to bet against the two trends we’ve rode all season.
Give me the NC Dinos and the RL, as they close out this series with a victory.
