The KT Wiz Suwon and SK Wyverns meet Friday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Suwon KT Wiz Park.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning 16 of their last 24 games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in 19 of their last 26 games. In their last effort, Jo Yong-ho and Hwang Jae-gyun combined for four hits and two RBI while Odrisamer Despaigne allowed one run and eight hits in seven innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 22 of their last 34 games overall. William Cuevas gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 16 of their last 27 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 14 of their last 29 games. In their last effort, Choi Ji-hoon and Oh Jun-hyeok combined for three hits and one RBI while Park Jong-hoon allowed three runs and five hits in 5.2 innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 28 of their last 42 games overall. Moon Seung-won gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The KT Wiz Suwon have won seven straight meetings against the SK Wyverns. Seven of the last 10 meetings between the Wiz Suwon and Wyverns have produced single-digit run totals.
The SK Wyverns continue to be fade material with the losses piling up and an offense that just can't put anything together consistently. The KT Wiz Suwon have also won seven straight games against the SK Wyverns, as if the losing stretch wasn't enough. This is actually a solid pitching matchup and Seung-won has been more than solid this season with his 3.43 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 84 innings, but he doesn't win much because of the team he pitches for. Cuevas also has a 3.97 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 68 innings, and he's allowed three earned runs in his last 20 innings. The KT Wiz Suwon are looking solid in gam one of this series.
I have no choice but to side with the KT Wiz Suwon and the RL for added value.
