On Friday, the 15 of May, the heat of ninth league action of the Korean Baseball Organization League, 2020, continues with the table leader, NC Dinos, against the last place holder, SK Wyverns in Munhak Baseball Stadium, Incheon.
The SK Wyverns, running a six-game losing streak with only one win against the Hanwha Eagles earlier this season. The SK Wyverns desperately need a victory here to get out of the brutal loss, with only success out of eight matches played, with a 1-7 in the regular-season form, thanks to their poor pitching. The SK Wyverns allowed only 26 runs in a fierce squaring against the LG Twins and allowed four or more runs in five of their last six games overall. In their previous league match against the LG Twins, Jamie Romak and Jeong Eui-Yoon had two hits and two RBI while Park Jongallowed only two runs and six hits in five innings. Although SK Wyverns desperately need a victory, they have lost 11 out of 12 games together with their preseason matches. Moon Seung-wons gets the ball for the SK Wyverns.
On the other hand, the table leader, NC Dinos, extend their treble lead against the KT Wiz Suwon to maintain the 7-1 regular-season record, with only one match lost against the LG Twins during their fifth league match. NC Dinos look to keep the winning rolling while improving their winning streak and extend their lead on top of the league table. The table leader is coming off a shutout win over the KT Wiz and hasn't allowed more than one run in each of their last 28 innings. In their previous match against the KT Wiz Suwon, Aaron Alther and Yang Eui-Ji together pulled two hits and one RBI while Koo Chang-mo allowed zero runs and four hours in eight innings. Lee Jae-Hak gets the ball for the NC Dinos.
Looking at head to head, the SK Wyverns have won four of their last five meeting against the NC Dinos. Seven of the previous eleven matches between them yield only a single-digit run total. The SK Wyverns have a better head to head record against the NC Dinos, but I think that will not save them the spot this time. This is because SK Wyverns have lost six games straight, and their pitcher got rocked in three tries against the LG Twins. NC Dino's, looking to extend their win, is leading with 7-1, and their pitcher allowed no more than one run in each of their last 28 innings. NC Dinos were close to one of the worst teams, until this point where they proved otherwise. The key to their success being good pitching, and this might give them another beautiful edge over the SK Wyverns who finished second last season. Although SK Wyverns won't make it pretty, it's safe to say NC Dinos will record another victory to extend their win and lead.
