The SK Wyverns and Lotte Giants meet Tuesday 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 20 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 12 of their last 22 games. In their last effort, Choi Hang and Kim Sung-hyun combined for four hits and three RBI while Moon Seung-won allowed three runs and six hits in seven innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 25 of their last 35 games overall. Ricardo Pinto gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The Lotte Giants look for a win after winning six of their last 10 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in eight of their last 11 games. In the latest effort, Lee Dae-ho and Jeon Jun-woo combined for two hits and two RBI while Dan Straily allowed one run and four hits in six innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 18 of their last 30 games overall. Adrian Sampson gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The SK Wyverns have won 15 of the last 19 meetings against the Lotte Giants, but all four of those losses came in the last six meetings. Nine of the last 18 meetings between the Wyverns and Giants produced double-digit run totals.
The SK Wyverns are probably the pick here based on the history, as they clearly have the Giants number with wins in 15 of the last 19 meetings. However, the high scoring history between these clubs and the pitching matchup leads me toward the over. Pinto has a 4.48 ERA and 1.71 WHIP in 72.1 innings this season while Sampson has a 6.50 ERA and 1.77 WHIP in 45.2 innings. Sampson is coming off a game where he allowed eight runs and 11 hits in 4.1 innings. Pinto has allowed four or more earned runs in three of his last five starts.
Half of the last 18 meetings between the Wyverns and Giants have seen 10 or more runs. Give me the over.
