The Doosan Bears and SK Wyverns meet Wednesday 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 eight of their last 11 games. In their last effort, Ahn Gwon-su and Oh Jae-il combined for three hits and two RBI while Lee Young-ha allowed five runs and seven hits in 5.1 innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 17 of their last 32 games overall. Raul Alcántara gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 10 of their last 15 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in nine of their last 17 games. In their last effort, Choi Ji-hoon and Yoon Suk-min combined for four hits and five RBI while Lee Geon-wook allowed three runs and five hits in seven innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 22 of their last 30 games overall. Ricardo Pinto gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The Doosan Bears have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the SK Wyverns. Eight of the last 11 meetings between the Bears and Wyverns have produced double-digit run totals.
We cashed on the SK Wyverns as big underdogs last night, but we can't exactly push our luck considering this is the same team that's won back-to-back games just once since June 7. The Doosan Bears also scored more than enough runs in yesterdays loss to win the game, so I'm not exactly worried about them moving forward as they're a dangerous team when the bats are hot. Alcántara has also been a rather solid pitcher this season with a 3.14 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 69 strikeouts in 71.1 innings this season. Pinto has a 4.14 ERA and 1.68 WHIP with 40 strikeouts in 67.1 innings this season, and the SK Wyverns have lost four of his last five starts.
I'll side with the Doosan Bears and take the RL for added value.
