In their last effort, Han Dong-min and Choi Hang combined for four hits and two RBI while Baek Seung-geon allowed four runs and three hits in 2.2 innings of work. The SK Wyverns have lost 45 of their last 66 games overall. Moon Seung-won gets the ball tonight for the SK Wyverns.
The LG Twins look for a win after winning 26 of their last 37 games. The LG Twins pitching staff has allowed five or more runs in 34 of their last 59 games. In their last effort, Roberto Ramos and Yang Suk-hwan combined for three hits and seven RBI while Jung Chan-heon allowed four runs and eight hits in five innings of work.

The LG Twins have won 11 of the last 13 meetings against the SK Wyverns. Seven of the last 11 meetings between the Twins and Wyverns have produced single-digit run totals.
Moon Seung-won has a 3.95 ERA and 1.23 WHIP this season through 111.2 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in 10 of his last 12 starts. Sung Jae-heon has a 2.45 ERA and 1.64 WHIP this season through 3.2 innings, and this will be just his third career KBO appearance. Small sample size for Jae-heon, so you'd probably give the edge to the SK Wyverns on the mound. However, the LG Twins have won 11 of the last 13 meetings against the SK Wyverns, and when the h2h numbers are that one-sided, you often throw everything else out the window and just back the history.
Until the SK Wyverns show they're capable of fighting back against the LG Twins, you have to be on the other side in this matchup.
