Samsung Lions vs. SK Wyverns
KBO Baseball: Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: -- Over/Under:
SK Wyverns and Samsung Lions 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.
SK Wyverns has really been struggling all season and coming into this game they have won 14 games while losing 33 games. Coming into this game, SK Wyverns has lost two games in a row and the offense was terrible during each of those games scoring a grand total of zero runs. The previous two games the offense had scored seven runs in each of the games, so if they want to win this game, the offense is going to need to get going.
SK Wyverns is led by Jeong Choi who has hit four home runs and driven in 23 RBI’s. Jamie Romack has also been hit elite for SK Wyverns hitting eight home runs and driving in 29 RBI’s. Romack has also had 30 walks.
On the other side of this matchup is the Samsung Lions who currently sit with a .500 record and the last thing they want to drop back below that mark with a loss in this game. Even though the Lions lost their last game they won four of the last six games. Each of the last two wins the pitching staff gave up only five runs total, and in this game, it’s going to be important that the pitching staff is good.
On offense the Samsung Lions have had three different players hit five home runs, but no one has gone over that mark. Min-ho Kang has only had eight RBI’s, but he has hit five home runs. Ja-Wook Koo has hit five home runs and 17 RBI’s and Dong-yeop Kim has hit five home runs and driven in 21 RBI’s.
Jong-woon Park will get the start for SK Wyverns while Chae-Heung Choi will get the start for the Samsung Lions. Park has a 3-3 record and an ERA of 5.81 while Choi has a 4-2 record and an ERA of 3.96.
The weather in this game will be clear, but there will be a 7-8 mile per hour wind blowing out towards right field.
These are two teams who have struggled, but the Samsung Lions do have an advantage on the mound. Look for Choi to not be perfect, but he will do enough to come away with the victory for Samsung.
