The Doosan Bears and Kiwoom Heroes meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The Doosan Bears look for a victory after winning five of their last six games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 12 of their last 17 games. In their last effort, Kim Jae-hwan and Hur Kyoung-min combined for two hits and three RBI while Raul Alcántara allowed zero runs and five hits in seven innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 22 of their last 28 games overall. Park Chi-guk gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win after losing four of their last five games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 16 of their last 27 games. In their last effort, Kim Hye-sung and Lee Ji-young combined for two hits and one RBI while Eric Jokisch allowed six runs and six hits in 5.2 innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 20 of their last 34 games overall. Choi Won-tae gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The Doosan Bears have won seven of the last 10 meetings against the Kiwoom Heroes, but they’ve lost three of the last five meetings. Four of the last five meetings between the Heroes and Bears have produced double-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears are not only playing the better baseball at the moment and have the clear h2h advantage in this series, but they have the better starting pitcher on the mound for this contest. Chi-guk has a 2.76 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 29.1 innings while Won-tae has a 4.72 ERA and 1.32 WHIP in 66.2 innings. Won-tae has allowed 11 runs and 19 hits in his last eight innings, while Chi-guk has allowed zero earned runs and six hits in his last seven innings. These odds are a little confusing when you consider pretty much everything is pointing in the direction of the Doosan Bears. Still...
I'll gladly take the Doosan Bears and the cheap price in the second game of this series.
