NC Dinos vs. Lotte Giants
KBO Baseball: Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: -- Over/Under
The Lotte Giants and NC Dinos face off in KBO baseball action on Tuesday morning in the United States. Like the other games so far this season, there will be no fans in attendance for this game.
The Lotte Giants currently sit one game below .500 with a 22-23 record but they were able to come away with a victory in their last game. Overall last week, the Lotte Giants won two of their four games with two of the other games being rained out. The offense for the Lotte Giants has been inconsistent and in the two losses they scored only five runs total. The Giants pitching staff is decent, but the offense needs to be there too.
The Giants are led by a couple of power hitters who have boosted their offense. Jun-woo Jeon comes into this game having 53 hits, nine home runs, and driving in 23 RBI’s. Dae-ho Lee has also been good, hitting seven home runs and driving in 32 RBI’s.
The NC Dinos are the best team in the KBO and coming into this game they have 32 wins and 14 losses. Last week the Dinos had a lot of success winning four of their six games, including the last game against the Doosan Bears. In that game the Dinos pitching staff was locking down giving up zero runs and that led to a 5-0 victory.
The NC Dinos are an elite offensive team and so far this season they have had five different guys hit at least seven home runs. Sung-bum Na has been a star for the Dinos hitting 13 home runs and driving in 41 RBI’s. Aaron Athleer has also been good coming into this game having hit 12 home runs and driving in 42 RBI’s.
Dae-woo Kim will get the start for the Lotte Giants while Mike Wright will be on the mound for the NC Dinos. Kim has a 0-1 record and an ERA of 4.60 while Wright has a 6-2 record and an ERA of 3.60. The weather should be clear but there will be a ten mile an hour wind blowing in from right field.
Wright has been a strong pitcher this season and when he is on the mound he gets the run support. Look for Wright to lock down and lead the Dinos to win on the run line
