The KIA Tigers and LG Twins meet Wednesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Gwangju Kia Champions Field.
The KIA Tigers need a victory after losing four of their last five games. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 22 of their last 38 games. In their last effort, Preston Tucker and Na Ji-wan combined for three hits and three RBI while Lee Min-woo allowed six runs and six hits in five innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won 24 of their last 41 games overall. Yang Hyun-jong gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning 11 of their last 15 games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 23 of their last 37 games. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Chae Eun-sung combined for four hits and eight RBI while Tyler Wilson allowed one run and six hits in six innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 23 of their last 48 games overall. Lee Min-ho gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The LG Twins have won eight of the last 11 meetings against the KIA Tigers. Eight of the last 11 meetings between the Tigers and Twins have produced double-digit run totals.
This line makes absolutely no sense, as the LG Twins are playing head and shoulders the better baseball and have won eight of the last 11 meetings against the KIA Tigers. The KIA Tigers have had a rough week and are throwing a pitcher out there in Yang Hyun-jong who has a 5.88 ERA and 1.50 WHIP in 78 innings. Hyun-jong has allowed three or more earned runs in four of his last five starts. Lee Min-ho has a 2.00 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 45 innings, and he's allowed no more than two earned runs in all nine games he's pitched this season.
I'll gladly take the LG Twins and the cheapener price, as there's no way they should be the underdog in this game based on current from, history and the starting pitching matchup.
