The Samsung Lions and Hanwha Eagles meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Daegu Samsung Lions Park.
The Samsung Lions look for another victory to build on their three-game winning streak. The Samsung Lions have allowed a combined 36 runs and 60 hits in their last six games. In their latest effort, Koo Ja-wook and Lee Hak-ju combined for six hits and two RBI while Heo Yoon-dong allowed two runs and five hits in five innings of work. The Samsung Lions have won 16 of their last 25 games overall. David Buchanan gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The Hanwha Eagles need a win after losing seven of their last eight games and their last three games. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed 54 runs and 90 hits in their last eight games. In their last effort, Kim Tae-kyun and Choi Jae-hoon combined for five hits and two RBI while Jang Shi-hwan allowed one run and seven hits in five innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 34 of their last 42 games overall. Kim Bum-soo gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The Samsung Lions have won eight of the last 11 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles and have outscored them 17-6 in the three meetings this year. Six of the last 12 meetings between the Lions and Eagles have produced double-digit run totals.
The Samsung Lions have looked sharp in this series and have dominated the Hanwha Eagles for much of the last 11 meetings, which includes outscoring them 17-6 in three matchups this year alone. The Hanwha Eagles are a team we’ve blindly faded for much of the season and there’s no reason to turn back now given they’ve lost 34 of their last 42 games and have a pitching staff that gets rocked more times than not. The Hanwha Eagles not only have the worst record in the league right now, but their pitching staff is allowing an average of 6.4 runs per game. The Hanwha Eagles offense is averaging 3.3 runs per game. Not much to see here.
Give me the Samsung Lions for the much needed sweep.
