NC Dinos and SK Wyverns face off in a KBO baseball showdown early on Sunday 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 beaten SK Wyverns each of the first two games of this series.
To say SK Wyverns have been a disappointment this season might be an understatement. Coming into this game they have lost eight games in a row and overall this season they have won only one game. The offense for SK Wyverns has struggled, and over the last six games they have only scored more than two runs once.
As bad as the offense has been, SK Wyverns has had one real bright spot on offense. Dong-min Han has already hit four home runs and driven in 10 RBI’s. Outside of Han though, the offense has been a real issue and no other guy has more than two RBI’s. If they want a chance to win this game, SK Wyverns need the offense to be better.
The NC Dinos are looking like one of the best teams in the KBO again this season. Coming into this game the NC Dinos have won five games in a row and nine of the last ten games. For the most part this season the NC Dinos pitching has been really good. Over the last three games the NC Dinos have given up only four runs total.
On offense, the Dinos are led by Sung-bum Na and Suk-min Park who have both hit three home runs.
The NC Dinos will send out Drew Rucinski to the mound while SK Wyverns will get the start for Seung-geon Baek. Rucinski has pitched 11.1 innings and currently sits with an ERA of 3.97, while Baek will make his first start of the season.
The weather is expected to be clear for this game with winds blowing in from right field at 7-9 MPH.
The NC Dinos are the better team and they are going to be a blowout winner in this game. SK Wyverns won’t score more than two runs, which will lead to the Dinos winning on the run line.
