The Samsung Lions and LG Twins meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Daegu Samsung Lions Park.
The Samsung Lions need a victory here after losing 18 of their last 25 games. The Samsung Lions have allowed five or more runs in 14 of their last 25 games. In their latest effort, Kim Sang-su and Kang Min-ho combined for two hits while Choi Chae-heung allowed two runs and one hit in 2.2 innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lost 23 of their last 34 games overall. Ben Lively gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning 21 of their last 31 games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 30 of their last 53 games. In their last effort, Jang Joon-won and Jung Ju-hyeon combined for two hits and three RBI while Jung Chan-heon allowed three runs and nine hits in five innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 29 of their last 64 games overall. Casey Kelly gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Samsung Lions have won four of the last six meetings against the LG Twins, but the last 12 meetings have been split down the middle. Each of the last five meetings between the Twins and Lions have produced double-digit run totals.
Ben Lively has a 5.36 ERA and 1.37 WHIP this season through 45.1 innings, and he's allowed four or more earned runs in three of his last four starts. Ben Lively has been given the loss in three of his last four starts and is 6-10 in his two-year KBO career. Casey Kelly has a 3.90 ERA and 1.29 WHIP this season through 108.1 innings, and he's allowed two or less earned runs in each of his last four starts. Casey Kelly has earned the victory in each of his last three starts. The LG Twins are playing the better baseball entering this series, and they have a considerable edge on the mound in this series opener.
I'll gladly side with the cheap price and the LG Twins in this matchup.
