The Doosan Bears and Kiwoom Heroes meet Thursday 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 10 games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 13 of their last 21 games. In their last effort, Kim Jae-hwan and Hur Kyoung-min combined for four hits and two RBI while Raul Alcántara allowed two runs and five hits in six innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 23 of their last 32 games overall. Park Chi-guk gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 18 of their last 31 games. In their last effort, Addison Russell and Park Dong-won combined for three hits and three RBI while Eric Jokisch allowed two runs and nine hits in five innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 22 of their last 38 games overall. Lee Seung-ho gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The Doosan Bears have won seven of the last 11 meetings against the Kiwoom Heroes. Five of the last eight meetings between the Heroes and Bears have produced double-digit run totals.
The Doosan Bears have played the better baseball over the last week, have had a h2h advantage over the Kiwoom Heroes and have an obvious starting pitching advantage in this contest as well. Chi-guk has a 3.19 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in 31 innings this season, and he's allowed just two earned runs in his last 8.2 innings. Seung-ho has a 6.12 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 60.1 innings, and he's allowed 15 earned runs in his last 8.1 innings. The Kiwoom Heroes have also lost each of the last three games Seung-ho has pitched. The Doosan Bears will have to work harder for the win considering they're going with a bullpen game, but backing Seung-ho in his current form isn't an option right now.
Give me the Doosan Bears and the more than reasonable price in game two of this series.
