The KT Wiz Suwon and NC Dinos meet Sunday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The KT Wiz Suwon look for a win after winning 13 of their last 19 games. The KT Wiz Suwon offense has produced four or more runs in 14 of their last 21 games. In their last effort, Yoo Han-joon and Jang Sung-woo combined for two hits and one RBI while Kim Min-soo allowed four runs and six hits in three innings of work. The KT Wiz Suwon have won 19 of their last 29 games overall. So Hyeong-jun gets the ball tonight for the KT Wiz Suwon.
The NC Dinos need a win after losing 12 of their last 19 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 26 of their last 44 games. In their last effort, Park Joon-young and Na Sung-bum combined for two hits and three RBI while Song Myung-gi allowed one run and four hits in 5.2 innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 25 of their last 46 games overall. Choi Sung-young gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The NC Dinos are 10-4-1 in the last 15 meetings against the KT Wiz Suwon, but they’ve lost each of the last two meetings. Ten of the last 13 meetings between the Dinos and Wiz Suwon have produced single-digit run totals.
So Hyeong-jun has a 4.64 ERA and 1.36 WHIP this season through 75.2 innings, and he's allowed a combined one earned run in his last 17.2 innings. Choi Sung-young has a 4.92 ERA and 1.57 WHIP this season through 53 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in seven of his last 10 starts. The NC Dinos and plus money is always intriguing, as they're still the best team in the league despite their struggles the last couple of weeks. However, the KT Wiz Suwon have one of the hotter pitchers on the mound in Hyeong-jun, who has been lights out his last three starts.
I'll take the KT Wiz Suwon and the cheap price in this contest.
