The SK Wyverns and Kiwoom Heroes meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Incheon SK Happy Dream Stadium.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 13 of their last 19 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 11 of their last 21 games. In their last effort, Jamie Romak and Oh Jun-hyeok combined for two hits and one RBI while Park Jong-hoon allowed two runs and six hits in six innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 25 of their last 34 games overall. Moon Seung-won gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win after losing five of their last eight games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 16 of their last 25 games. In their last effort, Kim Ha-seong and Park Byung-ho combined for three hits and four RBI while Han Hyun-hee allowed one run and four hits in 6.2 innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 20 of their last 32 games overall. Jake Brigham gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won five of the last six games against the SK Wyverns and 14 of the last 17 meetings overall. Six of the last 12 meetings between the Heroes and Wyverns have produced double-digit run totals.
Seung-won has a 3.25 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in 72 innings this season, but the SK Wyverns have lost each of his last three starts due to a lack of run support. Brigham has a 4.30 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 23 innings this season, and he seems to be getting better as his reps increase, and he's coming off a game where he allowed one run and three hits in five innings. The Kiwoom Heroes have the pitcher in better form, they're playing the better baseball right now and they've absolutely beat up on the SK Wyverns dating back to last season.
I'll gladly lay the reasonable price with the Kiwoom Heroes, as they close out this series with a victory.
