The Samsung Lions need a victory here after losing 20 of their last 28 games. The Samsung Lions have allowed five or more runs in 16 of their last 28 games. In their latest effort, Kim Sang-su and Park Seung-gyu combined for two hits while Kim Dae-woo allowed three runs and six hits in 4.1 innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lost 25 of their last 37 games overall. Won Tae-in gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.  

The Samsung Lions have won six of the last 10 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles, but the last 12 meetings have been split down the middle. Four of the last nine meetings between the Eagles and Lions have produced double-digit run totals.

Kim Min-woo has a 4.27 ERA and 1.42 WHIP this season through 90.2 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in seven of his last nine starts. Won Tae-in has a 4.08 ERA and 1.45 WHIP this season through 90.1 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in five of his last six starts. The Hanwha Eagles dominated the Lions last night in a shutout victory and they have the starting pitching edge in this contest as well. The Samsung Lions are also one of those teams that's put themselves in automatic fade territory, so while the Hanwha Eagles have issues of their own and are a team we don't like much, we can say the same about the other side now.

Give me the Eagles and the plus money.
