The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win after losing five of their last six games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 16 of their last 28 games. In their last effort, Seo Keon-chang and Park Dong-won combined for two hits and two RBI while Choi Won-tae allowed four runs and five hits in three innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 20 of their last 35 games overall. Han Hyun-hee gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The Lotte Giants look for a win after winning seven of their last 12 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in nine of their last 13 games. In the latest effort, Jung Hoon and Jeon Jun-woo combined for three hits and three RBI while Park Se-woong allowed two runs and five hits in 5.1 innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 19 of their last 32 games overall. Dan Straily gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won two of the last three games against the Lotte Giants and 11 of the last 15 meetings overall. Nine of the last 13 meetings between the Heroes and Giants have produced single-digit run totals.
The Kiwoom Heroes have fallen off a cliff over the last week and we shouldn't expect it to turn around with Hyun-hee on the mound, as he has a 6.28 ERA and 1.64 WHIP, and he's given up a combined 18 earned runs in his last three starts. Straily has been arguably the best pitcher in baseball this season with a 2.03 ERA and 0.96 WHIP in 88.2 innings. Straily has also allowed just one earned run and 10 hits in his last 21 innings. Straily has allowed two or less earned runs in nine of his last 10 games. If you're stepping in front of that, you're nuts.
The Lotte Giants and the cheap price with who is on the mound feels like an absolute steal.
