The Doosan Bears and Lotte Giants meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The Doosan Bears look for a victory after losing 11 of their last 21 games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 21 of their last 38 games. In their last effort, Park Kun-woo and Kim Jae-ho combined for two hits and three RBI while Lee Young-ha allowed six runs and eight hits in 6.2 innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 30 of their last 48 games overall. Raul Alcántara gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Lotte Giants look for a win after winning 16 of their last 28 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in 18 of their last 29 games. In the latest effort, Jung Hoon and An Chi-hong combined for four hits and four RBI while Adrian Sampson allowed zero runs and one hit in six innings of work. The Lotte Giants have lost 25 of their last 48 games overall. Park Se-woong gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The Doosan Bears are 5-4-1 against the Lotte Giants in the last 10 meetings. Nine of the last 14 games between the Giants and Bears have produced double-digit run totals.
Raul Alcántara has a 2.81 ERA and 1.10 WHIP this season through 115.1 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in each of his last 12 starts. Park Se-woong has a 4.75 ERA and 1.46 WHIP this season through 83.1 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in six of his last 10 starts. Park Se-woong has always ben a subpar pitcher, as he has a 5.22 ERA and 1.55 WHIP in his KBO career that dates back to 2015. The Lotte Giants are playing the better baseball overall right now and it's worth a look at the big plus money, but they're at a serious disadvantage on the mound in this spot and that's the reason for the price.
Give me the Doosan Bears to win this game, and I'll take the RL for added value.
