The KT Wiz Suwon and Kiwoom Heroes meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Sajik Baseball Stadium.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in seven of their last nine games. In their last effort, Mel Rojas and Hwang Jae-gyun combined for five hits and three RBI while William Cuevas allowed five runs and seven hits in 6.1 innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 11 of their last 17 games overall. Kim Min-soo gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for another victory after winning 13 of their last 16 games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 10 of their last 13 games. In their last effort, Kim Ha-seong and Lee Jung-hoo combined for five hits and six RBI while Choi Won-tae allowed four runs and five hits in four innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 15 of their last 20 games overall. Lee Seung-ho gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The KT Wiz Suwon and Kiwoom Heroes have split their last 12 meetings, but it’s the Heroes who have a 3-2 edge this year. The last four games between the Wiz Suwon and Heroes have produced a combined 58 runs.
The Kiwoom Heroes remain one of the hotter teams in the league right now with wins in 15 of their last 20 tries, and they have an offense that’s producing at a ridiculous level at the moment. The KT Wiz Suwon have had a great dal of success in their own right, but it doesn’t quite measure up to what the Heroes are doing right now. Also, Min-soo isn’t a pitcher I want to get behind, as he has a 5.79 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP with 19 strikeouts in 32.2 innings. The Kiwoom Heroes are just not a team I want to step in front of right now, a club that’s lost just five games since June 12.
I’ll lay the juice and side with the Kiwoom Heroes for another victory.
