The Doosan Bears and LG Twins meet Friday 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. Yu Hui-kwan gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning four of their last six games and just swept the Hanwha Eagles. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 18 of their last 28 games. In their last effort, Oh Ji-hwan and Roberto Romas combined for four hits and five RBI while Tyler Wilson allowed one run and three hits in six innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 21 of their last 39 games overall. Cha Woo-chan gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Doosan Bears have won seven of the last eight meetings against the LG Twins. Five of the last seven meetings between the Bears and Twins have produced double-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears would be the side here if forced to make a pick based on their history against the LG Twins and winning seven of the last eight contests. However, this is a lousy pitching matchup and we're used to seeing high scores when the Bears and Twins meet. Hui-kwan has a 4.93 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in 69.1 innings this season while Woo-chan has a 5.37 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 63.2 innings. Woo-chan has allowed six or more runs in three of his last five starts and Hui-kwan has given up three or more earned runs in five straight starts. The last three meetings between the Bears and Twins are producing an average of 11.3 runs.
The total is rather high, but I'm still taking the over 11 runs in game one of this series.
