The NC Dinos and Doosan Bears meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Changwon NC Park.
The NC Dinos need a win after losing 13 of their last 22 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 28 of their last 47 games. In their last effort, Na Sung-bum and Yang Eui-ji combined for six hits and eight RBI while Mike Wright allowed four runs and six hits in five innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 27 of their last 49 games overall. Song Myung-gi gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The Doosan Bears look for a victory after losing 13 of their last 27 games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 26 of their last 44 games. In their last effort, Choi Joo-hwan and Park Kun-woo combined for two hits and two RBI while Raul Alcántara allowed four runs and nine hits in six innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 34 of their last 54 games overall. Lee Seung-jin gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Doosan Bears and NC Dinos have split the last eight meetings down the middle. Nine of the last 10 meetings between the Dinos and Bears have produced double-digit run totals.
Song Myung-gi has a 3.62 ERA and 1.14 WHIP this season through 32.1 innings, and he's allowed two runs and six hits in his last 10.2 innings. Lee Seung-jin has a 4.02 ERA and 1.28 WHIP this season through 15.2 innings, and he's allowed zero earned runs and six hits in his last 11 innings. While the sample size is a bit smaller, you can make a strong argument that Seung-jin is the better pitcher here, not allowing a single earned run in his last 11 innings and averaging more than a strikeout per inning. The NC Dinos seem to have gotten back on track this week, but the Doosan Bears have had success against them this season and have the offense to give themselves a fighting chance whenever they take the field.
Give me the Doosan Bears and the plus money.
