The Hanwha Eagles and SK Wyverns meet Monday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Hanwha Life Eagles Park.
The Hanwha Eagles need a win to snap an eight-game losing streak. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 12 of their last 17 games. In their last effort, Brandon Barnes and Choi Jae-hoon combined for four hits and three RBI while Warwick Saupold allowed three runs and three hits in six innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 34 of their last 44 games overall. Chad Bell gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 13 of their last 23 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 14 of their last 25 games. In their last effort, Choi Joon-woo and Han Dong-min combined for two hits and four RBI while Moon Seung-won allowed three runs and three hits in five innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 25 of their last 38 games overall. Lee Geon-wook gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The SK Wyverns have won 12 of the last 17 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles, but two of those losses came in the last five meetings. Seven of the last nine meetings between the Wyverns and Eagles have produced double-digit run totals.
This line makes no sense when you consider the Hanwha Eagles are riding an eight-game losing streak and have lost 34 of their last 44 games. Bell has also been horrible this season with a 7.96 ERA and 1.90 WHIP in 37.1 innings, and he's given up 10 runs in his last 10.1 innings. Geon-wook has been much more reliable, posting a 3.08 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 49.2 innings. Geon-wook has also allowed three or less runs in each of his last seven starts.
Backing the Hanwha Eagles isn't an option in their current form and hasn't been an option in ages. Throw in the pitching matchup and there's no way you can pass up the and the SK Wyverns cheaper price.
