Kia Tigers at Kiwoom Heros
KBO Baseball: Wednesday, May 6, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: Kiwoom -155/ Kia +123 -- Over/Under: 9.5
The Kiwoom Heros and Kia Tigers face off in their second game of the KBO Baseball season early on Wednesday morning.
Kiwoom looked dominant in their first game of the season against the Kia Tigers putting up 11 runs on the way to an easy victory. Overall Kiwoom has won three games in a row and six of their last ten games. Kiwoom used a balanced attack on offense, with eight players having at least one hit. Byung-ho Park is the Heros best player and got his season off to a flying start. Park had three hits, one home run, scored two runs, and two RBI’s. Eric Jokisch is slated to be making his first start of the season but who knows how long he will go. In the first game of the season, no pitcher went more than four innings.
The Kia Tigers will be looking to rebound after a disapointing loss in the first game. The Tigers had won their last three games of the preseason and overall they have won five of their last ten games. Kia only averaged six hits and two runs. The Tigers used four different pitchers against the Heros and none of them were particularly impressive.
Hyun-jong Yang went three innings giving up four hits and four earned runs. Aaron Brooks is projected to be the starting pitcher for Kia.
The Kiwoom Heros have won four of the last five games played between the two teams. Each of the four wins, Kiwoom has scored at least six runs, and in each of the last two games they have scored at least 11 runs.
The weather is supposed to be clear for this game, so there should be no concerns there that could play a factor in the game.
The Heros offense has been cooking and they are going to run up the score again in this game. Look for Park to hit another home run or two and pace Kiwoom on the way to a victory. Back Kiwoom to win a game that covers the over. This is a play that can be parlayed together.
