The LG Twins and Doosan Bears meet Saturday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning 24 of their last 35 games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 32 of their last 57 games. In their last effort, Kim Hyun-soo and Lee Hyung-jong combined for three hits and two RBI while Tyler Wilson allowed five runs and four hits in six innings of work. The LG Twins have lost 30 of their last 68 games overall. Lim Chan-gyu gets the ball tonight for the LG Twins.
The Doosan Bears look for a victory after losing 14 of their last 29 games. The Doosan Bears offense has produced five or more runs in 27 of their last 46 games. In their last effort, Oh Jae-il and Choi Joo-hwan combined for two hits and four RBI while Yu Hui-kwan allowed two runs and six hits in seven innings of work. The Doosan Bears have won 35 of their last 56 games overall. Choi Won-joon gets the ball tonight for the Doosan Bears.
The Doosan Bears have won eight of the last 11 meetings against the LG Twins, but the last six meetings have been split down the middle. Six of the last 10 meetings between the Bears and Twins have produced double-digit run totals.
Lim Chan-gyu has a 3.88 ERA and 1.34 WHIP this season through 95 innings, and he's allowed five earned runs in two of his last four starts. Choi Won-joon has a 4.08 ERA and 1.40 WHIP this season through 70.2 innings, and he's allowed two or less earned runs in five of his last seven starts. Won-joon has been an improved pitcher as of late, and even if you're not thrilled about the pitching matchup, the Doosan Bears have won eight of the last 11 meetings against the LG Twins. When a matchup is that one-sided, you just ride the trend until it stops being such a strong trend.
I'll lay the more than reasonable price with the Doosan Bears here.
