The SK Wyverns and NC Dinos meet Wednesday 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 nine games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in six of their last 11 games. In their last effort, Choi Ji-hoon and Oh Jun-hyeok combined for three hits and two RBI while Moon Seung-won allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 19 of their last 24 games overall. Lee Geon-wook gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning five of their last six games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. In their last effort, Park Suk-min and Kang Jin-sung combined for four hits and two RBI while Koo Chang-mo allowed one run and eight hits in seven innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 11 of their last 16 games overall. Lee Jae-hak gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The NC Dinos have won nine of the last 11 meetings against the SK Wyverns, which includes a 6-1 record this year. For of the last five meetings between the Wyverns and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
The SK Wyverns have a clear starting pitching advantage in this contest, as Geon-wook has a 3.19 ERA and 1.39 WHIP with 28 strikeouts in 36.2 innings. Jae-hak has been one of the few subpar pitchers for the NC Dinos this season, posting a 5.72 ERA and 1.49 WHIP with 33 strikeouts in 50.1 innings. Now, even knowing that, you're still probably not interested in backing the SK Wyverns, a club that finds ways to lose no matter what and doesn't have a consistent offense to help out its pitchers. The NC Dinos have bounced back from two poor weeks, winning 10 of their last 14 tries and they're 6-1 against the SK Wyverns this year.
Give me the NC Dinos, and I'll take the RL for added value.
