The Doosan Bears and SK Wyverns meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The Doosan Bears look for a victory after splitting their last six games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in nine of their last 12 games. In their last effort, Kim Jae-hwan and Park Se-hyuk combined for three hits and four RBI while Raul Alcántara allowed two runs and eight hits in six innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 18 of their last 33 games overall. Chris Flexen gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 11 of their last 16 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in nine of their last 18 games. In their last effort, Choi Ji-hoon and Choi Jeong combined for three hits and two RBI while Ricardo Pinto allowed five runs and nine hits in five innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 23 of their last 31 games overall. Baek Seung-geon gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The Doosan Bears have won eight of the last 11 meetings against the SK Wyverns. Eight of the last 12 meetings between the Bears and Wyverns have produced double-digit run totals.
You can usually take risks in baseball with these monster prices and cash some tickets. We see it all the time in MLB where even the best teams in the game lose 60 times a season. Getting three times your money in a baseball game is a spot that’s tough to turn down. With that said, the SK Wyverns have lost 11 of their last 16 games for a reason, and they’re thiteming out a pitcher in Seung-geon who has a 7.00 ERA and 2.33 WHIP with nine strikeouts in nine innings. Small sample size, but having as many walks as strikeouts and giving up four homers in nine innings isn’t a good start. Flexen has a 3.86 ERA and 1.27 WHIP with 57 strikeouts in 63 innings.
Give me the Doosan Bears and the RL for added value.
