KBO Baseball: Wednesday, May 13, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: Samsung Lions +180 / Kiwoom Heroes -220 -- Over/Under: 9
The Samsung Lions and Kiwoom Heroes face off in a KBO baseball showdown early on Wednesday morning for everyone in the United States. The Kiwoom Heroes knocked off the Samsung Lions 3-2 on Tuesday.
The Kiwoom Heroes are hot coming into this game having won six of the seven games this season and dating back to last season they have won eight of their last nine games. There haven’t been many big blowout wins, but they have done enough to come away with a win.
In their last four games they have scored only nine runs total, but they still were able to come away with a win. That means that the starting pitching and bullpen has had a lot of success. Hyun Yang has pitched 4 2/3rd inning and still hasn’t given up a run. On offense, the Kiwoom Heroes are led by Byung-ho Park and Jung-hoo Lee who both have hit two home runs.
The Samsung Lions have only two wins on the season and coming into this game they have lost two games in a row. Over the last two games, the Lions have scored only five runs total and that isn’t enough going forward.
On offense, the Samsung Lions are led by Dong-yeop Kim who has hit two home runs and six RBI’s. The Lions have five players that have hit at least one home run so far this year.
David Buchanan is on the mound for the Samsung Lions while Won-tae Choi is expected to be on the mound for the Kiwoom Heroes. Buchanan struggled in his first start giving up five runs in six innings pitched. Choi was good in the first start going five innings and currently sits with an ERA of 3.60.
The weather is expected to be clear for this game but the wind could be an issue. Throughout the game, there could be 10-20 MPH winds.
Buchanan struggled in his first start and it’s going to happen again in this game. Look for the Heroes to take advantage and that will be the difference. Back the Heroes to win this game with ease on the run line. If you can get them at -2.5 that’s an even better play.
