The LG Twins and NC Dinos meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The LG Twins need a victory here after losing seven of their last nine games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 14 of their last 20 games. In their last effort, Roberto Ramos and Jeong Keun-woo combined for one hit and two RBI while Lim Chan-gyu allowed four runs and six hits in four innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 18 of their last 31 games overall. Lee Min-ho gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning seven of their last nine games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 12 of their last 17 games. In their last effort, Yang Eui-ji and Park Suk-min combined for three hits and four RBI while Drew Rucinski allowed one run and three hits in six innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 13 of their last 19 games overall. Mike Wright gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The NC Dinos have won five of the last eight meetings against the LG Twins. Six of the last 11 meetings between the Dinos and Twins have produced double-digit run totals, with the last three contests producing a combined 50 runs.
I strongly considered backing the LG Twins in this spot because of the pitching matchup, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Min-ho has been highly impressive for the Twins this season with a 1.62 ERA and 1.17 WHIP with 25 strikeouts in 33.1 innings and the Twins have won three of his last five starts. The problem is the Twins can't produce a victory regardless of who is on the mound and their pitching staff gets rocked more times than not. Wright has a 3.63 ERA this season with a 1.35 WHIP and the Dinos have won eight of his 11 games this season.
The plus money with the Twins is attractive, but you can also argue we're not used to getting the Dinos at these prices. Give me the more trustworthy team in the Dinos.
