The SK Wyverns will duke it out against the Doosan Bears in another three-game series of the KBO League tomorrow at the Jamsil Baseball Stadium in Seoul.
The SK Wyverns continue to struggle in the basement of the league after conceding two defeats in their last series against the bottom-placed Hanwha Eagles. Occupying the 9th position of the league table, the SK Wyverns have an 18-41 record in the regular season and a winning percentage of 0.305. In their last time out, the Wyverns suffered a 4-2 defeat after recovering from a 6-5 loss in the first game of the series with a 3-5 win. In the game, Choi Ji-hoon and Jeong Jin-gi scored one run each for the SK Wyverns.
Lee Geon-wook will start the game for the SK Wyverns. Geon-wook allowed three runs on 4.1 innings in his previous start. Also, he has now given up one or fewer runs in four of his last six outings, settling as a reliable arm in the Wyverns rotation. Overall, he has recorded an ERA of 2.95, 1.29 WHIP, and a 3-2 record. On offense, the SK Wyverns’ center-field will be held by Choi Ji-hoon. The Outfielder has recorded a batting average of .291, 5 RBIs, and 17 runs for the Wyverns.
In contrast, the Doosan Bears occupy the second position with a 34-24 record in the regular season and a winning percentage of 0.586. The defending champions overtook the Kiwoom Heroes after the latter suffered a disappointing defeat in all matches of their previous series. The Bears have lost only two out of 6 previous league games. In their previous game, the Lotte Giants snapped the Doosan Bears of their two-game winning streak with a narrow 5-4 win in the second game of their series.
Lee Young-ha will start the game for the Doosan Bears. Young-ha’s pitching performance is impressive, but a poor 40:32 K:BB over 60.2 innings continues to limit his overall performance. He has recorded a 5.79 ERA, 3-4 record, and a WHIP of 1.85. Jung Soo-bin will hold the Doosan Bears’ center-field. Soo-bin has sported a .253 batting average, one home run hit, 19 RBIs, and 24 runs.
The Doosan Bears have lost only two out of 6 previous games with the SK Wyverns. In their last meeting, the Doosan Bears suffered a shocking 7-0 shutout defeat. Although the Doosan Bears own a very poor pitching performance, they are the best batting team in the league with .301 batting average, 342 RBIs, and 59 home run hits, and they have scored 361 runs from 625 hits. Also, they have recorded an ERA of 5.13 in 58 games. On the other hand, the SK Wyverns’ offensive performance is unimpressive, although their pitching stats are average. The Wyverns have recorded .240 batting average, 206 RBIs, 219 runs from 474 hits, and a 4.74 ERA in 59 games.
