The Hanwha Eagles need a win after losing six of their last nine games. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 14 of their last 21 games. In their last effort, Lee Hae-chang and Kang Kyung-hak combined for zero hits and two RBI while Jang Shi-hwan allowed zero runs and one hit in seven innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 35 of their last 48 games overall. Warwick Saupold gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.     

The LG Twins have won 10 of their last 11 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles. Eight of the last 11 meetings between the Eagles and Twins have produced single-digit run totals.

There's been a lot of low scoring games between these two clubs in the past, but these are two pitching staffs that have had issues keeping crooked numbers off the board these last few weeks. This is also a rough pitching matchup. Yun-sik has a 6.75 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 16 innings the season. Small sample size, but not a great start for Yun-sik. Saupold has a 4.66 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 94.2 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in each of his last six starts. This is a rough pitching matchup and it makes you think we're due for a high scoring game between these two clubs, especially with how these staffs have pitched for the most part heading into this series.

Give me the over with the reasonable run total.
