The Kiwoom Heroes and Lotte Giants meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Gocheok Sky Dome.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win after losing six of their last seven games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 16 of their last 29 games. In their last effort, Kim Ha-seong and Lee Jung-hoo combined for one hit and two RBI while Han Hyun-hee allowed five runs and six hits in 6.2 innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 20 of their last 36 games overall. Kim Jae-woong gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The Lotte Giants look for a win after winning eight of their last 13 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in 10 of their last 14 games. In the latest effort, Jung Hoon and Son Ah-seop combined for three hits and four RBI while Dan Straily allowed zero runs and two hits in seven innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 19 of their last 33 games overall. Seo Jun-won gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The Kiwoom Heroes have won two of the last four games against the Lotte Giants and 11 of the last 16 meetings overall. Ten of the last 14 meetings between the Heroes and Giants have produced single-digit run totals.
The Kiwoom Heroes have the clear h2h advantage over the Lotte Giants dating back to last season, but they're in brutal form right now over the last week and don't have a pitcher on the hill you should be running to back. Jae-woong has a 4.44 ERA and 1.60 WHIP this season in 24.1 innings, and he has 11 strikeouts to go with 22 strikeouts. Jun-won has had his issues as well with his 4.82 ERA and 1.44 WHIP, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in four straight starts. However, the Giants have shown an offensive punch lately and they're finding ways to win games this week.
I'll ignore history in this matchup and take the team in better form and the plus money.
