The Doosan Bears and LG Twins meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The Doosan Bears look for a victory after winning six of their last eight games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 13 of their last 19 games. In their last effort, Oh Jae-il and Kim Jae-hwan combined for two hits and two RBI while Choi Won-joon allowed one run and four hits in five innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 23 of their last 30 games overall. Lee Young-ha gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning five of their last eight games and just swept the Hanwha Eagles. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 19 of their last 30 games. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Lee Hyung-jong combined for three hits and two RBI while Casey Kelly allowed five runs and six hits in five innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 22 of their last 41 games overall. Lee Min-ho gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Doosan Bears have won eight of the last 10 meetings against the LG Twins. Six of the last nine meetings between the Bears and Twins have produced double-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears are clearly playing the better baseball and have had the h2h advantage in this series all season long. However, Young-ha has a 5.96 ERA and 1.85 WHIP this season in 71 innings, and he's allowed four earned runs in each of his last three starts. Min-ho has been much better with a 1.80 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in 40 innings, and he's allowed two or less earned runs in all eight of his games this season. The Doosan Bears are the better team, but odds in baseball often come down to who is getting the ball on the mound, and this is a solid price for the Twins.
I'll side with the LG Twins and the even money in this contest based on the pitching matchup.
