The NC Dinos and KIA Tigers meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning seven of their last 11 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in seven of their last 11 games. In their last effort, No Jin-hyuk and Kim Tae-goon combined for two hits and two RBI while Choi Sung-young allowed four runs and five hits in seven innings of work. The NC Dinos have won eight of their last 13 games overall. Drew Rucinski gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The KIA Tigers look for another win to build on their three-game winning streak. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 12 of their last 15 games. In their last effort, Kim Sun-bin and Choi Hyung-woo combined for four hits and four RBI while Drew Gagnon allowed two runs and six hits in 6.1 innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won 12 of their last 18 games overall. Yang Hyun-jong gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The KIA Tigers have won seven of the last eight meetings against the NC Dinos and five straight meetings overall. Five of the last nine meetings between the Tigers and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos have been the most consistent team in the league all year and have been a team we've blindly backed for most of the season and they have the pitching edge in this game. Rucinski has a 2.38 ERA and 1.12 WHIP with 61 strikeouts in 64.1 innings this season, while Hyun-jong has a 4.67 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with 41 strikeouts in 54 innings. That's why the NC Dinos are the favorite in this game. However, the KIA Tigers are playing the better baseball right now and have won seven of the last eight meetings against the NC Dinos. The KIA Tigers are probably the only team in this league that doesn't fear the NC Dinos.
I have to take the KIA Tigers and the plus money. There's just too much value here.
