The KIA Tigers and KT Wiz Suwon meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Gwangju Kia Champions Field.
The KIA Tigers look for a win to build on their four-game winning streak. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 20 of their last 33 games. In their last effort, Choi Hyung-woo and Na Ji-wan combined for three hits and four RBI while Im Ki-young allowed four runs and seven hits in 5.1 innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won 23 of their last 36 games overall. Drew Gagnon gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning 15 of their last 23 games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in 18 of their last 25 games. In their last effort, Hwang Jae-gyun and Bae Jeong-dae combined for three hits and two RBI while Kim Min-soo allowed four runs and seven hits in seven innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 21 of their last 33 games overall. Bae Je-seong gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The KT Wiz Suwon have won 10 of the last 14 meetings against the KIA Tigers. Each of the last five meetings between the Wiz Suwon and Tigers have produced double-digit run totals.
The KT Wiz Suwon have dominated the KIA Tigers dating back to last season and have been the more consistent team overall these last couple of weeks. However, the KIA Tigers finished the week strong and have been consistently putting together strong pitching performances. We should expect another one here with Gagnon posting a 3.53 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 74 innings, and he's allowed two runs in his last 12.1 innings. Je-seong has a 4.11 ERA and 1.51 WHIP in 70 innings this season, and he's coming off a game where he allowed six runs and nine hits in five innings. The KIA Tigers have the edge on the mound today and have been pitching better overall lately.
I'll take the KIA Tigers and the reasonable price in game one of this series.
