The Doosan Bears and LG Twins meet Saturday 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 seven games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 12 of their last 18 games. In their last effort, Lee Yoo-chan and Hur Kyoung-min combined for two hits and one RBI while Yu Hui-kwan allowed five runs and eight hits in five innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 22 of their last 29 games overall. Choi Won-joon gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning five of their last seven games and just swept the Hanwha Eagles. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 18 of their last 29 games. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Kim Min-sung combined for seven hits and five RBI while Cha Woo-chan allowed zero runs and zero hits in 0.1 innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 21 of their last 40 games overall. Casey Kelly gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Doosan Bears have won seven of the last nine meetings against the LG Twins. Five of the last eight meetings between the Bears and Twins have produced double-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears still have the h2h advantage in recent matchups, but it's the LG Twins who have the pitching advantage in this matchup. The Doosan Bears are starting a relief pitcher in this matchup in Won-Joon who has a 4.15 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 39 innings this season and has gone more than two innings just once in six tries. Kelly has a 4.36 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 76.1 innings this season, and he's allowed just three earned runs and 13 hits in his last 13.1 innings. Kelly is the more trustworthy pitcher in this matchup and he's gone at least six innings in eight straight starts.
In a pick em contest, I'm going to lean toward the LG Twins with the more reliable pitcher on the hill.
