The Kiwoom Heroes and NC Dinos meet Tuesday morning in South Korea KBO baseball action at the Gocheok Sky Dome.
The Kiwoom Heroes look for a win after winning 21 of their last 29 games. The Kiwoom Heroes have scored no less than five runs in 21 of their last 43 games. In their last effort, Lee Ji-young and Lee Jung-hoo combined for five hits and three RBI while Jake Brigham allowed two runs and eight hits in seven innings of work. The Kiwoom Heroes have won 25 of their last 38 games overall. Kim Jae-woong gets the ball tonight for the Kiwoom Heroes.
The NC Dinos need a win after losing 14 of their last 25 games. The NC Dinos have scored five or more runs in 30 of their last 50 games. In their last effort, Yang Eui-ji and Na Sung-bum combined for three hits and three RBI while Shin Min-hyuk allowed four runs and five hits in five innings of work. The NC Dinos have won 29 of their last 52 games overall. Mike Wright gets the ball tonight for the NC Dinos.
The Kiwoom Heroes and NC Dinos have split the last 10 meetings down the middle. Five of the last seven meetings between the Heroes and Dinos have produced double-digit run totals.
Kim Jae-woong has a 2.63 ERA and 1.41 WHIP this season through 41 innings, and he's allowed zero runs and one hit in his last five innings. Mike Wright has a 4.13 ERA and 1.39 WHIP this season through 104.2 innings, and he's allowed three or more earned runs in five of his last six starts. The NC Dinos are going to be the favorites based on what they've done this season, but the Kiwoom Heroes have played with them this season and enter this series playing the better baseball overall. Wright also isn't a pitcher I'm thrilled about backing in the favorite role based on him getting tagged a bit over the last month or so. I'll take my chances with the plus money here, as we have enough in our favor.
Give me the Kiwoom Heroes.
