The Line: Samsung Lions / Kiwoom Heroes -- Over/Under:
The Samsung Lions and Kiwoom Heroes face off in a KBO baseball showdown early on Thursday morning for everyone in the United States. The Kiwoom Heroes won the first game of this series 3-2, but the Samsung Lions bounced back in their last game winning 5-0.
The Kiwoom Heroes for the most part have played strong this season but are coming off a loss. The Heroes have won six of their games so far this season and dating back to last season they have won eight out of ten.
The Heroes offense hasn’t been one that is running up the score most nights, so it's been the pitching that has had to be the difference. During their latest four game winning streak, the Kiwoom Heroes didn’t give up more than three runs in any of the games. On offense, the Kiwoom Heroes are led by Jung-hoo Lee who has hit two home runs and driven in seven runs.
The Samsung Lions have lost five of their eight games this season, but they did come away with a win in their last against the Kiwoom Heroes.
In the last game against the Heroes it was the pitching that was the difference giving up zero runs and that led to the victory. With the way the Heroes offense has been playing, it’s probably going to need to be the pitching that gets the job done.
Over the last three games, the Lions have scored only 11 runs total, and that includes the win where they scored five runs.On offense the Heroes are led by Dong-yeop Kim who has hit two home runs and six RBI’s.
Chae-heung Choi will be on the mound for the Samsung Lions while Seung-ho Lee will be on the mound for the Kiwoom Heroes. Both guys have already made one start this season, and both looked good in their first outing.
The weather in this game is expected to be fine in this game with slight winds blowing.
These are two pitchers who have been strong to start the season and that will happen again in this game. Look for a low scoring game that stays well under the total.
