The Lotte Giants and KIA Tigers meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Sajik Baseball Stadium.
The Lotte Giants could use a feel good victory after losing four of their last six games. The Lotte Giants have produced a combined 27 runs and 64 hits in their last six games and have scored five or more runs in nine of their last 14 games. In the latest effort, Kim Joon-tae and Son Ah-seop combined for three hits and three RBI while Seo Jun-won allowed three runs and five hits in five innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 21 of their last 37 games overall.
The KIA Tigers could use a victory here after winning four of their last six games. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in seven of their last nine games. In their last effort, Choi Hyung-woo and Yoo Min-sang combined for four hits and three RBI while Aaron Brooks allowed zero runs and one hit in seven innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won 23 of their last 37 games overall.
The KIA Tigers have won nine of the last 10 meetings against the Lotte Giants, which includes six victories this year alone. Four of the last nine meetings between the Tigers and Giants have produced double-digit run totals.
The Lotte Giants were finally able to win a game against the KIA Tigers, but they did so by scoring three runs in the ninth inning, so it wasn't exactly the easiest of victories. Before that win, the Lotte Giants had lost nine straight games against the KIA Tigers. The Lotte Giants are still a tough team to trust right now with losses in four of their last six games and a pitching staff that can get rocked out of nowhere. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in seven of their last nine games and they're playing a team they've downright owned over the the last 14 months.
I look for the KIA Tigers to win game two by actually closing the door this time.
