The Line: NC Dinos/ SK Wyverns -- Over/Under:
NC Dinos and SK Wyverns face off in a KBO baseball showdown early on Friday morning for everyone in the United States. Like the games before this one, there will be no fans in the game for this showdown.
The NC Dinos have been almost unbeatable to start the season coming into this game having won seven of their eight games. In the last game the pitching was lights out, and even though the offense only scored one run, they still came away with a win.
In three of the last four games for the Dinos they scored at least five runs, and they will look for offensive success in this game. Sung-bum Na currently leads the NC Dinos with home runs, having already hit out three of them. Jin-hyuk No has added two home runs and eight RBI’s, which is enough to lead the team.
On the other side of this matchup is SK Wyverns who come into this game having lost six games in a row and on the season they only won one game.
The biggest issue for SK Wyverns has been with their offensive output. In three of the last four games they have given up two runs or less, and in the only game they went over that number they finished with five.
One of the only bright spots this season for SK Wyverns has been the production Dong-min Han who has hit four home runs and driven in 10 runs.
Jae-hak Lee is on the mound for the NC Dinos while Seung-won Moon will be on the mound for the SK Wyverns.Lee has one start so far this season and sits with an ERA of 6.75. Moon went 5.2 innings in his only start this season and currently sits with an ERA of 6.35.
There is a chance for rain in this game and the wind is expected to be blowing 10-12 miles per hour from 1st base to third base.
Both of these starting pitchers struggled in their first starts and that is going to happen again in this game. Look for there to be plenty of scoring early and that will lead to the game going well over the total.
