The SK Wyverns and NC Dinos meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Incheon SK Happy Dream Stadium.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing seven of their last 10 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in seven of their last 12 games. In their last effort, Lee Hyun-seok and Oh Jun-hyeok combined for two hits and three RBI while Lee Geon-wook allowed one run and three hits in six innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 19 of their last 25 games overall. Ricardo Pinto gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning five of their last seven games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. In their last effort, Mo Chang-min and Kang Jin-sung combined for two hits and one RBI while Lee Jae-hak allowed three runs and four hits in six innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 11 of their last 17 games overall. Choi Sung-young gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The NC Dinos have won nine of the last 12 meetings against the SK Wyverns, which includes a 6-2 record this year. Four of the last six meetings between the Wyverns and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos are a club we’ve made a lot of money just blindly backing this season, but this isn’t a spot I’m looking to lay the juice or even get involved with a RL. Instead, I’ll look at taking the over. Four of the last six meetings between the Wyverns and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals. Also, Pinto has a 4.26 ERA with a 1.71 WHIP and 37 strikeouts in 61.1 innings this season. Sung-young has been one of the few struggling pitchers for the NC Dinos this season, posting a 5.70 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and nine strikeouts in 23.2 innings. I have a hard time getting involved with big numbers when both pitchers have been stinking up the joint.
Expect some fireworks. Give me the over 10 runs.
