The Lotte Giants look for a win after winning 13 of their last 21 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in 15 of their last 22 games. In the latest effort, Jung Hoon and Son Ah-seop combined for one hit and one RBI while Noh Kyung-eun allowed one run and three hits in five innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 21 of their last 41 games overall. Adrian Sampson gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The NC Dinos need a win after losing seven of their last 10 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 21 of their last 35 games. In their last effort, Lee Myung-gi and Yang Eui-ji combined for three hits and five RBI while Choi Sung-young allowed one run and two hits in five innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 21 of their last 37 games overall. Jang Hyun-shik gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The Lotte Giants have won five of the last seven meetings against the NC Dinos. Four of the last six meetings between the Dinos and Giants have produced double-digit run totals.
The NC Dinos have gone from a team we blindly back and make big profit from to a team that's lost seven of their last 10 games and a club we don't recognize. Things likely won't get much better in this game considering Jang Hyun-shik is a pitcher who has a 9.31 ERA and 1.86 WHIP through 9.2 innings this season. While you could argue it's a small sample size, Hyun-shik has an ERA of 5.36 in a KBO career that dates back to 2013. Adrian Sampson has his issues as well with a 6.24 ERA and 1.76 WHIP in 49 innings, but he's also allowed one earned run in two of his last three starts, so we're starting to see improvement here.
The Lotte Giants have also gotten the better of the NC Dinos in recent meetings. I'll lay the cheap price.
