Odds: SK Wyverns -125, LG Twins -106; O/U 8.5
In the second match of the next fixture of the highly competitive season of the Korean Baseball Organization League 2020, the LG Twins will be squaring off against the SK Wyverns.
Dating back to the preseason, SK Wyverns have lost eight out of their last nine games. Having played five league matches, the SK Wyverns are 1-4 in regular-season action. SK Wyverns have managed to lose three matches in a row woefully. Although they were a game away from securing a spot in the Korean series, they are now reeling at the bottom of the table, with only one match won.
LG Twins, on the other hand (2-3) are coming off a win over the NC Dinos where they scored ten runs and 15 hits, thanks to Chae Eun-sung, Roberto Ramos, and Casey Kelly’s combined runs and hit to see the LG Twins through to victory. Although LG Twins lost in the Semi-PlayOff in 2019, they have successfully snapped off their 3 games losing streak and snatch a win from the NC Dinos last week.
Cha Woo-chan, who won his first season start against the Doosan Bears to a single run in 6 Innings pitched, will be given the ball. He is also looking to improving his Home Run record having reduced from 27 to 16 in 2019. During his first start, he gave up his sole run from the deep ball but looking to propel and elevate himself during the next game against the SK Wyverns.
SK Wyverns is the only team in the KBO with less than 20 runs; we should be expecting a real heat-up as the game is going to be an extremely tough battle line. Here, SK Wyverns will be looking out for more of their man, Nick Kingham, who is a former Major League Baseball player at Pittsburgh Pirates and Toronto Blue Jays to give the SK Wyverns an edge and experience over the LG Twins. Nick, who signed last year with the SK Wyverns, gave in three runs off six hits in 7 Innings in his first game with the team.
LG Twins and SK Wyverns’s last six matches have been split down the middle with the Wyverns winning only one meeting, during the preseason. Eight of their last 11 meetings between the two teams have double-digit run totals. Although both teams are sloppy with a high number of losing streaks, there is always a high run total whenever they meet, coupled with numbers of pitching issues. However, the LG Twins won their last two games despite poor pitching, while SK Wyverns has been battling with poor pitching since the preseason.
The two infielders for the match are LG Twins’ first baseman, Roberto Ramos, and SK Wyverns’ Choi Jeong.
