The NC Dinos and Lotte Giants meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning five of their last seven games and just took two of three games from the Doosan Bears. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in four of their last seven games. In their last effort, Kwon Hee-dong and Park Min-woo combined for five hits and four RBI while Drew Rucinski allowed zero runs and four hits in seven innings of work. The NC Dinos have split their last 14 games overall.
The Lotte Giants have split their last six games and just lost two of three games to the Samsung Lions. The Lotte Giants offense has produced four or less runs in six of their last nine games. In the latest effort, Son Ah-seop and Lee Dae-ho combined for four hits and five RBI while Park Se-woong allowed three runs and four hits in six innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost nine of their last 13 games overall.
The Lotte Giants and NC Dinos have split the last 10 meetings, but it’s the Giants who have won the last three meetings. Four of the last eight meetings between the Giants and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos haven't been as dominant as they were a few weeks ago when we would automatically back them and watch the profit pile up, but they had a bounce back week with wins in five of their last seven games and the offense has picked up lately. The Lotte Giants are hit or miss and not a team I trust much mainly due to an offense that can really struggle to sustain success. The Lotte Giants have scored four or less runs in four of their last five games, and they're now averaging just 4.6 runs per game on the season. If the NC Dinos are going to build on a solid week and they play anywhere close to their ability, they should have a field day in this series.
Give me the NC Dinos to draw first blood.
