In the latest effort, Jeon Jun-woo and Lee Dae-ho combined for three hits and seven RBI while Dan Straily allowed zero runs and two hits in six innings of work.

In their last effort, Ko Jong-wook and Choi Hang combined for four hits and one RBI while Park Jong-hoon allowed six runs and three hits in three innings of work.

Adrian Sampson has a 6.43 ERA and 1.75 WHIP this season through 56 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in four of his last six starts. Lee Geon-wook has a 4.74 ERA and 1.42 WHIP this season through 74 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in five of his last six starts.

There's not much difference between these two starting pitchers, but it's the Lotte Giants who are playing the better baseball and have won six of the last nine meetings.
Give me the Lotte Giants and the reasonable price, as I'll back form in this series opener.
