The SK Wyverns and KIA Tigers meet Thursday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Incheon SK Happy Dream Stadium.
The SK Wyverns need a win here after losing 30 of their last 47 games. The SK Wyverns pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 20 of their last 49 games. In their last effort, Kim Sung-min and Choi Ji-hoon combined for three hits and one RBI while Baek Seung-geon allowed one run and two hits in 3.2 innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 41 of their last 62 games overall. Moon Seung-won gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The KIA Tigers need a victory after losing 13 of their last 23 games. The KIA Tigers pitching staff has allowed four or less runs in 30 of their last 56 games. In their last effort, Yoo Min-sang and Han Seung-taek combined for four hits and four RBI while Drew Gagnon allowed two runs and five hits in six innings of work. The KIA Tigers have won 32 of their last 59 games overall. Im Ki-young gets the ball tonight for the KIA Tigers.
The KIA Tigers have won nine of the last 12 meetings against the SK Wyverns. Four of the last eight meetings between the Tigers and Wyverns have produced double-digit run totals.
Moon Seung-won has a 4.04 ERA and 1.25 WHIP this season through 104.2 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in six of his last seven starts. Im Ki-young has a 4.46 ERA and 1.37 WHIP through 76.2 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in five of his last six starts. Im Ki-young has a career ERA of 4.97 and Moon Seung-won has a career ERA of 4.76. It's hard to get behind either of these pitchers with any confidence, and both of these teams are on some impressive losing stretches. I want nothing to do with either of these pitchers, and four of the last eight meetings between these clubs have produced double-digit run totals. Only one way to go here.
Give me the over 9.5 runs.
