The KT Wiz Suwon and Samsung Lions meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Suwon KT Wiz Park.    

The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning 10 of their last 13 games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in 13 of their last 15 games. In their last effort, Yoo Han-joon and Jang Sung-woo combined for four hits and six RBI while So Hyeong-jun allowed three runs and five hits in six innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 16 of their last 23 games overall. Kim Min-soo gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.      


The Samsung Lions need a victory here to snap a four-game losing streak. The Samsung Lions have allowed five or less runs in 14 of their last 24 games. In their latest effort, Lee Sung-gon and Choi Young-jin combined for two hits and three RBI while Choi Chae-heung allowed seven runs and nine hits in four innings of work. The Samsung Lions have won 18 of their last 30 games overall. David Buchanan gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.     

The KT Wiz Suwon have won seven of the last nine meetings against the Samsung Lions, but those two losses came in the last five contests. Seven of the last eight meetings between the Wiz Suwon and Lions produced double-digit run totals.

The KT Wiz Suwon have had the clear advantage in the h2h and are playing some of the best baseball in the league. The form suggests what the pick in this game should be. However, Buchanan has been one of the better pitchers as of late, as he has a 3.82 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 47 strikeouts in 70.2 innings, and he's produced wins in six of his last eight games. Min-soo has a 5.73 ERA and 1.83 WHIP with 20 strikeouts in 37.2 innings and he's received a decision four times in 15 games.

The Samsung Lions pitching is still holding up and that provides confidence that they'll break out of this funk. Buchanan is a pitcher worth getting behind as the Lions look to prevent the sweep.
