The Kiwoom Heroes and NC Dinos meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Gocheok Sky Dome.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win here after splitting their last six games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 14 of their last 21 games. In their last effort, Kim Ha-seong and Lee Jung-hoo combined for three hits and two RBI while Jake Brigham allowed one run and three hits in five innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 18 of their last 28 games overall. Eric Jokisch gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning seven of their last 11 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 13 of their last 19 games. In their last effort, No Jin-hyuk and Kwon Hee-dong combined for two hits and one RBI while Lee Jae-hak allowed five runs and nine hits in 5.1 innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 13 of their last 21 games overall. Choi Sung-young gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The NC Dinos have won five of the last eight meetings against the Kiwoom Heroes, but they’ve lost three of the last four meetings. Four of the last six meetings between the Heroes and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
It takes a lot to turn down this much plus money with the NC Dinos, a team that's been kind to us pretty much all season and is still the best team in the KBO right now. However, the Kiwoom Heroes have had recent success against the NC Dinos and enter this contest with a clear starting pitching edge. Sung-young has a 5.16 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 13 strikeouts in 29.2 innings. Jokisch has been one of the better pitchers in the KBO this season with a 1.41 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with 54 strikeouts in 76.2 innings. Jokisch has allowed just two earned runs in his last 21 innings, and the Kiwoom Heroes have won nine of the last 12 games he's pitched.
Give me the Kiwoom Heroes and the RL for added value.
