The Kiwoom Heroes and NC Dinos meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Gocheok Sky Dome.
The Kiwoom Heroes need a win here to snap a three-game losing streak. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 13 of their last 20 games. In their last effort, Kim Ha-seong and Park Dong-won combined for three hits and three RBI while Han Hyun-hee allowed seven runs and eight hits in two innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 17 of their last 27 games overall. Jake Brigham gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning seven of their last 10 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 13 of their last 18 games. In their last effort, Aaron Altherr and No Jin-hyuk combined for three hits and four RBI while Mike Wright allowed three runs and five hits in 2.1 innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 13 of their last 20 games overall. Lee Jae-hak gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The NC Dinos have won five of the last seven meetings against the Kiwoom Heroes, but the last 10 meetings have been split down the middle. Four of the last five meetings between the Heroes and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos have been a team we’ve backed a ton this season and it’s paid off given that they have the best record in the league and have found ways to bounce back eve after a bad week or two. Because of that, getting the NC Dinos at plus money regardless of the situation feels like a bet that needs to be made. Jae-hak hasn’t been good this season, as he has a 5.59 ERA and 1.44 WHIP with 37 strikeouts in 56.1 innings. However, we can say the same about Brigham who has a 5.00 ERA and 1.56 WHIP with 16 strikeouts in 18 innings. Two struggling pitchers, give me the team that we trust the most in this league.
Give me the NC Dinos and the more favorable line.
