The Hanwha Eagles and KIA Tigers meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Hanwha Life Eagles Park.
The Hanwha Eagles need a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 10 of their last 15 games. In their last effort, Kim Tae-kyun and Kang Kyung-hak combined for one hit and one RBI while Kim Min-woo allowed two runs and four hits in five innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 32 of their last 42 games overall. Chad Bell gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The KIA Tigers look for a win after splitting their last eight games. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 19 of their last 31 games. In their last effort, Park Chan-ho and Na Joo-hwan combined for three hits and two RBI while Yang Hyun-jong allowed one run and three hits in five innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won 21 of their last 34 games overall. Aaron Brooks gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The KIA Tigers are 12-2-1 in the last 15 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles, which includes wins in six of the last seven meetings. Six of the last seven meetings between the Eagles and Tigers have produced single-digit run totals.
The Hanwha Eagles simply aren't worth being backed these days regardless of the situation, as you're talking about a team that's lost 32 of their last 42 games. This game doesn't look good for the Eagles either considering Bell has a 7.96 ERA and 1.90 WHIP in 37.1 innings and has allowed 10 runs in his last 10.1 innings. Brooks has been one of the better pitchers in the KBO this season with a 2.49 ERA and 1.12 WHIP in 83 innings, and he just pitched a gem against Doosan, allowing two runs in eight innings. We also have the one sided history between these teams with the KIA Tigers winning 12 of the last 15 meetings.
Give me the KIA Tigers and the RL.
