The SK Wyverns and LG Twins meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Incheon SK Happy Dream Stadium.

The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 15 of their last 26 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 14 of their last 28 games. In their last effort, Lee Jae-won and Oh Jun-hyeok combined for five hits and three RBI while Baek Seung-geon allowed four runs and four hits in three innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 27 of their last 41 games overall. Park Jong-hoon gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.    


The LG Twins look for a win after winning eight of their last 11 games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 21 of their last 33 games. In their last effort, Chae Eun-sung and Kim Min-sung combined for four hits and seven RBI while Jung Chan-heon allowed five runs and 10 hits in five innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 22 of their last 44 games overall. Lim Chan-gyu gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.   

The LG Twins have won nine of the last 11 meetings against the SK Wyverns. Seven of the last nine meetings between the Twins and Wyverns have produced single-digit run totals.

The LG Twins are easily playing the better baseball entering this contest and have had their way with the SK Wyverns in past meetings, which includes scoring 35 runs in the past two meetings. The LG Twins have outscored the SK Wyverns 39-13 in the last three games, which is an 8.6 average margin of victory in the last three games. The LG Twins also have the pitching advantage in this matchup with Chan-gyu having a 3.73 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 70 innings, and he's allowed zero runs in his last 11.2 innings. Jong-hoon has a 4.97 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 76 innings, and the SK Wyverns have lost five of the last seven games he's pitched. 

This line should be a lot steeper. Getting the LG Twins at this cheap price feels like a steal on Thursday's KBO card.
