LG Twins at Doosan Bears
KBO Pre-season Baseball: Friday, May 1, 2020 at 5:00 am
The Line: LG Twins +145 / Doosan Bears -165 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Doosan Bears and LG Twins face-off in a KBO preseason baseball showdown early on Friday morning.
The Doosan Bears won the championship last year and have got off to a nice start to this season winning three of the five games. The offense has been good for the most part this year, this year, but in their last game the pitching let them down.
Against the Kiwoom Heros the Bears gave up 10 runs and even though the offense scored six runs it wasn’t enough to get the job done.
Won-Joon Choi really struggled for Doosan going only three innings giving up six hits, five earned runs, and one home runs. Hyuk Kwon also struggled going only two-thirds of an inning giving up two hits and three runs. If the Bears want any chance to come away with a win, they need the pitching to be a lot better.
The LG Twins won their first game of the preseason, and the last gmae of the preseason, but they lost three games in a row. Dating back to last season the Twins have won only four of their last ten games.
The Twins have been involved in a lot of scoring games and a big reason is because their offense hasn’t been running up the score.So far this season the LG Twins haven’t scored more than five runs in a score and in three of the games they scored three runs or less.
This is a team that probably won’t have a whole lot of offensive success in this game so it’s going to be the pitching that makes it important.
The LG Twins have won four of the last five games played between the two teams. The first time these two teams played during the preseason the Twins came away with a 5-2 victory.
The LG Twins have been involved in low scoring games and it’s going to happen again in this game. The Twins are going to get good pitching and make this a game where both teams only score a couple of runs and this will go under the total.
