The Kiwoom Heroes and KIA Tigers meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Gocheok Sky Dome.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for another victory after winning nine of their last 10 games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in six of their last seven games. In their last effort, Lee Jung-hoo and Park Dong-won combined for two hits and two RBI while Eric Jokisch allowed zero runs and one hit in eight innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 11 of their last 14 games overall. Choi Won-tae gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The KIA Tigers could use a bounce back victory after losing three of their last four games. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in eight of their last 11 games. In their last effort, Kim Sun-bin and Preston Tucker combined for two hits while Yang Hyun-jong allowed two runs and five hits in six innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won nine of their last 14 games overall. Aaron Brooks gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The Kiwoom Heroes are 7-3-1 in the last 10 meetings against the KIA Tigers, but they’ve been on the losing side in two of the last three meetings. Five of the last eight meetings between the Heroes and Tigers have produced double-digit run totals.
Like most KIA Tigers pitchers, Brooks has been money this season with a 2.62 ERA and 1.11 WHIP with 48 strikeouts in 55 innings. Won-tae has had some struggles with his 4.18 ERA and 1.26 WHIP and 35 strikeouts in 51.2 innings. The KIA Tigers should be the favorite based on the starting pitching advantage. However, we're getting the cheaper price with the team that's playing the better baseball in the Kiwoom Heroes, a team that's won nine of their last 10 games. Pitching is also just one part of the game, and the KIA Tigers are fresh off a contest where they were shutout and put together just two hits.
I'll take the hotter team and the cheaper price in the Kiwoom Heroes.
