The LG Twins and Kiwoom Heroes meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The LG Twins look for a victory after splitting their last eight games and are fresh off getting swept by the Doosan Bears. The LG Twins have produced a combined 48 runs in their last seven games. In their last effort, Oh Ji-hwan and Jeong Keun-woo combined for three hits and one RBI while Lee Min-ho allowed two runs and four hits in five innings of work. The LG Twins have won 22 of their last 35 games overall.
The Kiwoom Heroes look to build on their five-game winning streak and are fresh off sweeping the SK Wyverns. The Kiwoom Heroes have allowed a combined 11 runs and 41 hits in their last five games. In their last effort, Seo Keon-chang and Lee Jung-hoo combined for four hits and four RBI while Eric Jokisch allowed one run and three hits in seven innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 15 of their last 21 games overall.
The LG Twins and Kiwoom Heroes have split their last six meetings, but it was the Heroes who took two of three in the last series. Six of the last seven meetings between the Twins and Heroes have produced single-digit run totals.
The LG Twins showed no signs of life in their recent series against the Doosan Bears and they’re a hard team to trust when their pitching staff isn’t performing well. The Kiwoom Heroes have won five straight games out of nowhere and their pitching staff continues to deal during this stretch. In fact the Kiwoom Heroes are allowing an average of 2.2 runs per game during their current five-game winning streak. The Kiwoom Heroes have allowed three or less runs in six of their last nine games overall. There’s no way you can step in front of what the Kiwoom Heroes are doing right now, especially when their next series is against a team that was just swept in ugly fashion.
I’ll side with Kiwoom Heroes, as they look for their sixth straight victory.
