The Hanwha Eagles need a win after losing 10 of their last 16 games. The Hanwha Eagles pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in four of their last nine games. In their last effort, Noh Si-hwan and Song Kwang-min combined for four hits and five RBI while Chad Bell allowed zero runs and six hits in seven innings of work. The Hanwha Eagles have lost 47 of their last 66 games overall. Kim Ee-whan gets the ball tonight for the Hanwha Eagles.   

The Lotte Giants has won eight of the last 12 meetings against the Hanwha Eagles. Eight of the last 11 meetings between the Giants and Eagles have produced single-digit run totals.

Dan Straily has a 2.31 ERA and 1.05 WHIP this season through 124.2 innings, and he's allowed two or less earned runs in nine of his last 10 starts. Kim Ee-whan has a 5.86 ERA and 1.81 WHIP this season through 27.2 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in three of his last five starts. As if the Hanwha Eagles weren't fade material already, they're going up against arguably the best starting pitcher in the KBO, a pitcher we've blindly backed pretty much all season. We see Dan Straily, we back Dan Straily and lay the RL with him given the prices are getting out of control. Straily has been nothing but money and has earned the win in seven of his last nine starts.

Give me the Lotte Giants and the RL for max value in this series opener.
