The Lotte Giants and SK Wyverns meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Sajik Baseball Stadium.
The Lotte Giants look for a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced four or less runs in eight of their last 14 games. In the latest effort, Jung Hoon and Jeon Jun-woo combined for five hits and four RBI while Seo Jun-won allowed three runs and seven hits in six innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 12 of their last 18 games overall. Park Se-woong gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing six of their last seven games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in five of their last nine games. In their last effort, Chae Tae-in and Jamie Romak combined for five hits and four RBI while Kim Joo-han allowed six runs and eight hits in four innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 18 of their last 22 games overall. Park Jong-hoon gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The SK Wyverns have won 14 of the last 18 meetings against the Lotte Giants, but those four losses have come in four of the last five meetings. Seven of the last 10 meetings between the Wyverns and Giants have produced single-digit run totals.
The Lotte Giants should be favored here considering they're playing the better baseball and hav won four of the last five meetings against the SK Wyverns, finally breaking what was a curse against this team. However, the over seems like a better bet in this spot. Se-woong is a pitcher who has a 5.87 ERA with a 1.52 WHIP and 16 walks in 46 innings. Jong-hoon has a 5.64 ERA and 1.46 WHIP with 22 walks in 52.2 innings. Jong-hoon has also lost each of his last four starts. I'm not trying to get behind either of these starting pitchers with those numbers.
Give me the over in this game, as we should see some fireworks on July 5.
