The Lotte Giants look for a win after splitting their last 10 games. The Lotte Giants offense has produced five or more runs in 23 of their last 38 games. In the latest effort, Lee Dae-ho and An Chi-hong combined for five hits and three RBI while Noh Kyung-eun allowed one run and two hits in five innings of work. The Lotte Giants have split their last 16 games overall. Dan Straily gets the ball tonight for the Lotte Giants.
The Samsung Lions need a victory here after losing 10 of their last 15 games. The Samsung Lions have allowed five or more runs in 16 of their last 31 games. In their latest effort, Kim Sang-su and Park Gye-beom combined for two hits and two RBI while David Buchanan allowed four runs and nine hits in eight innings of work. The Samsung Lions have lost 13 of their last 19 games overall. Kim Dae-woo gets the ball tonight for the Samsung Lions.
The Lotte Giants have won the last three meetings against the Samsung Lions, but the last 12 meetings overall have been split down the middle. Five of the last 10 meetings between the Giants and Lions have produced double-digit run totals.
Dan Straily has a 2.48 ERA and 1.04 WHIP this season through 137.2 innings, and he's allowed two or less earned runs in 10 of his last 12 starts. Kim Dae-woo has a 3.53 ERA and 1.33 WHIP this season through 66.1 innings, and he's allowed three or less earned runs in 10 straight games, but he doesn't go deep into games often. Those who have followed along over the year know that when Straily is on the mound we back him automatically. Dan Straily is probably the best starting pitcher in the KBO this season and he's earned victories in nine of his last 11 starts. Don't step in front of the guy.
Give me the Lotte Giants, and I'll take the RL to shave down an expensive ML price.
