The NC Dinos and Samsung Lions meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The NC Dinos look for a win after winning 10 of their last 16 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 16 of their last 24 games. In their last effort, Park Min-woo and Na Sung-bum combined for four hits and two RBI while Lee Jae-hak allowed two runs and four hits in six innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 16 of their last 26 games overall. Choi Sung-young gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The Samsung Lions need a victory here after losing six of their last 10 games. The Samsung Lions have allowed five or less runs in 18 of their last 30 games. In their latest effort, Koo Ja-wook and Lee Hak-ju combined for four hits and one RBI while David Buchanan allowed two runs and six hits in eight innings of work. The Samsung Lions have won 22 of their last 36 games overall. Baek Jung-hyun gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The NC Dinos have won six of the last eight games against the Samsung Lions and eight of the last 11 meetings. Five of the last 10 meetings between the Lions and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos are a team we've backed a whole lot this season and they seem to have right the ship after some struggles last month. The Samsung Lions have run into a rough patch of their own, but the pitching staff continues to deal most nights and they've become a valuable team to back in these underdog roles because of the pitching staff. This is a blah pitching matchup with Sung-young having a 4.93 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 34.2 innings and Jung-hyun having a 4.86 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 53.2 innings. Jung-hyun is also coming off a game where he allowed zero earned runs and three hits in 5.2 innings.
We've cashed some nice tickets with the Samsung Lions in the underdog role this season. This feels like a spot to go back to the well.
