The NC Dinos and KT Wiz Suwon meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning nine of their last 15 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 15 of their last 23 games. In their last effort, Na Sung-bum and Yang Eui-ji combined for two hits and two RBI while Koo Chang-mo allowed zero runs and two hits in seven innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 15 of their last 25 games overall. Lee Jae-hak gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning 12 of their last 18 games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in 15 of their last 20 games. In their last effort, Kang Hyeon-woo and Bae Jeong-dae combined for two hits and one RBI while Jo Byung-wook allowed four runs and six hits in 3.1 innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 18 of their last 28 games overall. Odrisamer Despaigne gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The NC Dinos have won eight of the last 11 meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon. Ten of the last 14 meetings between the Dinos and Wiz Suwon have produced single-digit run totals, while the last three meetings have produced a combined 38 runs.
It's not often you're going to get the NC Dinos at these prices, so it's usually worth consideration when these opportunities do pop up. The issue here is that Jae-hak hasn't been good this season with a 5.84 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in 61.2 innings, and he's allowed at least three earned runs in each of his last five starts. Despaigne has been much better than expected and has given up a combined five earned runs in his last 20.2 innings. I also expect the KT Wiz Suwon offense to bounce back given their consistency over the last couple of weeks.
I'll take my chances with KT Wiz Suwon and the reasonable price based on the starting pitching advantage.
