The LG Twins and KT Wiz Suwon meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The LG Twins look for another victory after splitting their last six games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in eight of their last 12 games. In their last effort, Jung Ju-hyeon and Jang Joon-won combined for two hits and four RBI while Cha Woo-chan allowed six runs and nine hits in five innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 12 of their last 23 games overall. Casey Kelly gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning four of their last six games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in five of their last six games. In their last effort, Hwang Jae-gyun and Kang Baek-ho combined for five hits and six RBI while Bae Je-seong allowed one run and four hits in six innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won nine of their last 14 games overall. Jo Byung-wook gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The LG Twins have won 15 of the last 19 meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon and three of the six meetings this year. Seven of the last 12 meetings between the Twins and Wiz Suwon have produced double-digit run totals.
The LG Twins have a clear advantage in this series based on the history, but they're not a team I want to make a habit of backing based on the inconsistent play and the way their pitching staff has been getting lit up. Kelly has a 5.12 ERA this season with a WHIP of 1.37 and 37 strikeouts in 51 innings. Byung-wook has a 3.55 ERA with a 1.42 WHIP and three strikeouts in 12.2 innings. The KT Wiz Suwon are playing the better baseball this week, have a hot offense and have the clear advantage in this game in starting pitching.
I'll ignore history here and side with the KT Wiz Suwon to close out this series.
