SK Wyverns at Kiwoom Heroes

KBO Pre-season Baseball: Friday, May 1, 2020 at 1:00 am

The Line: SK Wyverns +130 / Kiwoom Heroes -150 -- Over/Under: 8.5

Kiwoom Heros and the SK Wyverns face-off early on Friday morning in some KBO baseball preseason action.  

The Kiwoom Heros got off to a slow start to the KBO preseason losing thier first two games, but they have turned it around winning three games in a row. This is a nice turnaround after the Heros lost four games in a row to end last season. 

In two of the three wins, the pitching staff was good giving up only two runs in each of the two games. In the last the offense gave up six runs, but the Heros offense was good scoring ten runs. Ha-seong Kim and Byung-ho Park each drove in three runs. If the offense can be good in this game, the Heros are going to be in good shape to come away with a victory.

The SK Wyverns won their first two games of the preseason but they are now struggling coming into this game having lost three games in a row. Over the last three games SK Wyverns has scored only seven runs total and that is a big issue going forward, if they can’t get it turned around

In the last game against KT Wiz the SK Wyverns only had four hits total, with no batter getting more than one hit. Starting pitcher Tae-hoon Kim went five innings giving up seven hits and two earned runs. He did a good job of getting out of jams, but the offense let him down.

The Kiwoom Heros have won four of the last five games played between the two teams. When these two teams faced off earlier this season the Heros came away with an 8-2 record. In each of the last four games there were at least nine runs scored between the two teams. 

When these two squads face off, they are high scoring games and it should be no different in this game. Look for both teams to have plenty of success scoring and that will lead to a high scoring affair that pushes this game over the total.
