In their last effort, Lee Hyung-jong and Yoo Kang-nam combined for three hits and six RBI while Lee Min-ho allowed five runs and eight hits in 6.2 innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 27 of their last 59 games overall. Lim Chan-gyu gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The KIA Tigers need a victory after losing eight of their last 15 games. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 27 of their last 48 games. In their last effort, Oh Seon-woo and Na Ji-wan combined for two hits and five RBI while Yang Hyun-jong allowed three runs and four hits in 5.2 innings of work.

The LG Twins have won nine of the last 13 meetings against the KIA Tigers. Six of the last eight meetings between the Tigers and Twins have produced double-digit run totals.
Lim Chan-gyu has a 3.71 ERA and 1.28 WHIP this season through 85 innings, and he's allowed one or less runs in four of his last five starts. Aaron Brooks has been one of the better pitchers this season in the KBO, posting a 2.60 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 110.2 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in 13 of his last 14 starts. The KIA Tigers have the better pitcher on the mound in this contest, but Lim Chan-gyu has been far more consistent lately, and the LG Twins have pretty much dominated the KIA Tigers this season with wins in nine of the last 13 tries.
For the slightly cheaper price, it feels like the LG Twins should be the pick here, especially with them playing the better baseball right now.
