The Samsung Lions need a win after splitting their last eight games, and they just took two of three games from the Hanwha Eagles. The Samsung Lions have allowed five or less runs in seven of their last 10 games. In their latest effort, Kim Dong-yeop and Park Seung-gyu combined for two hits and two RBI while David Buchanan allowed eight runs and 12 hits in six innings of work. The Samsung Lions have won 10 of their last 16 games overall. Won Tae-in gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The Samsung Lions and Lotte Giants have split the last 10 meetings, but it was the Lions who took two of three games in the most recent series. Seven of the last 10 meetings between the Giants and Lions have produced single-digit run totals.
This is a tough series to predict considering both teams have been hit or miss all season long and they've been an even tougher read over the last couple of weeks. The Lotte Giants offense has cooled off and they haven't played a game since Tuesday morning due to multiple rainouts. The Samsung Lions weren't able to sweep th Hanwha Eagles, but their pitching staff has been dealing lately and they've become slightly easier to trust. I'm just not all that thrilled about a struggling Lotte Giants club that's now had a couple of days off to break any rhythm they may have had.
I'm going to side with the Samsung Lions, but this is a series that's likely going to be up and down.
