The LG Twins and Hanwha Eagles meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning 21 of their last 30 games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 29 of their last 52 games. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Lee Hyung-jong combined for four hits and two RBI while Tyler Wilson allowed one run and four hits in 7.2 innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 28 of their last 63 games overall. Jung Chan-heon gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Hanwha Eagles need a win after losing 17 of their last 25 games. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 21 of their last 33 games. In their last effort, Song Kwang-min and Lim Jong-chan combined for three hits and four RBI while Chad Bell allowed one run and three hits in six innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 45 of their last 62 games overall. Warwick Saupold gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.
The LG Twins have won 11 of the last 12 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles. Eight of the last 12 meetings between the Eagles and Twins have produced double-digit run totals.
Jung Chan-heon ha a 3.67 ERA and 1.30 WHIP this season through 61.1 innings, and he's allowed two or less earned runs in five of his last seven starts. Warwick Saupold has a 5.00 ERA and 1.41 WHIP this season through 108 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in eight of his last nine starts. It's hard to get behind Saupold with any confidence, and it's quite clear the LG Twins have a major edge on the mound for this contest. The LG Twins have also dominated the Hanwha Eagles with wins in 11 of the last 12 meetings, a stretch that goes back to April of this year. There's only one way to lean in this contest.
I have no choice but to side with the LG Twins and the RL for added value.
