The LG Twins and Hanwha Eagles meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The LG Twins need a victory here after losing nine of their last 13 games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 17 of their last 24 games. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Lee Hyung-jong combined for six hits and five RBI while Jung Chan-heon allowed 10 runs and nine hits in 5.2 innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 20 of their last 35 games overall. Lim Chan-gyu gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Hanwha Eagles need a win after losing six of their last 10 games and just lost two of three against the KT Wiz Suwon. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in seven of their last 10 games. In their last effort, Jung Eun-won and Lee Yong-kyu combined for four hits and one RBI while Kim Min-woo allowed four runs and six hits in 5.2 innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 27 of their last 37 games overall. Kim Jin-wook gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The LG Twins have won each of the last seven meetings against the Hanwha Eagles, and all of those games took place this year. Four of the last eight games between the Twins and Eagles have produced double-digit run totals.
Neither of these starting pitchers are worth running to the window for, and Chan-gyu certainly isn't a pitcher worth these odds given his 4.47 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 15 walks in 58.1 innings. Chan-gyu has allowed eight runs and 15 hits in his last 11 innings. The LG Twins also aren't playing well enough to be laying these odds against anybody. However, the LG Twins have beat up on the Hanwha Eagles all year long with a 7-0 record, often getting whatever they want offensively. This line is an indication of just how bad the Hanwha Eagles are and what oddsmakers think of them.
Give me the LG Twins and the RL for added value.
