The Line: Lotte Giants -180 / Hanwha Eagles +150 -- Over/Under: 8.5
The Lotte Giants and Hanwha Eagles face off in a KBO baseball showdown early on Friday morning for everyone in the United States.
The Lotte Giants come into this game having lost two of the last three games, but before that they had won five games in a row to start the season. The offense has been good this year, but the pitching staff has let them down at times. In their last loss they gave up seven runs, and in the loss before that they gave up 11 runs.
Even in the one win during that stretch they gave up nine runs, but the offense was strong scoring ten runs and that was the difference. Dixon Machado is the star of the show hitting three home runs and driving in 12 runs. Jun-woo Jeon has also hit three home runs, but he has driven in only five runs.
The Hanwha Eagles have really struggled coming into this game having lost five of their last six games, but they did win come away with a win in their last game.The biggest issue for the Hanwha Eagles has been the way the offense has been playing. In each of their last six games, he hasn’t scored more than four runs. Even in the last win, the Eagles only managed to have four players cross the plate.
The Hanwha Eagles only have hit two home runs this season, and hitting a long ball or two in this game would be very helpful.
The Hanwha Eagles have won three of the last five games played between the two teams.
Dan Straily is on the mound for the Lotte Giants while Ee-whan Kim is on the mound for the Hanwha Eagles. Straily has made two starts and comes into this game with a 1-0 record and an ERA of 1.42. Kim has made one start and comes into this game with an ERA of 1.80.
These are two pitchers who have been good this year, and that will continue in this game. Look for Straily to shut down and that will keep this number under the posted total.
