The NC Dinos and Doosan Bears meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.

The NC Dinos look for a win after winning 12 of their last 21 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 18 of their last 29 games. In their last effort, No Jin-hyuk and Na Sung-bum combined for four hits and six RBI while Lee Jae-hak allowed five runs and seven hits in 2.1 innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 18 of their last 31 games overall. Drew Rucinski gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.    


The Doosan Bears look for a victory after winning six of their last 11 games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 14 of their last 22 games. In their last effort, Jose Fernandez and Choi Joo-hwan combined for two hits and five RBI while Yu Hui-kwan allowed six runs and nine hits in 4.1 innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 23 of their last 33 games overall. Choi Won-joon gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.  

The NC Dinos have won six of the last nine meetings against the Doosan Bears. Six of the last seven meetings between the Bears and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.

The NC Dinos may not be in the dominant form we're used to seeing them in, but they've had an extra day of rest for this series and have had the upper hand over the Doosan Bears this season. The NC Dinos also have a clear starting pitching edge in this contest. Won-joon has a 3.89 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 44 innings this season and has allowed one run in his last 10 innings. However, Rucinski has an even better 1.99 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 90.1 innings, and he's allowed a combined three earned runs in his last five starts. Rucinski has received the win in each of his last six starts and the NC Dinos have won seven of his last nine starts overall.

Give me the NC Dinos and the RL for added value.
