KBO Baseball: Wednesday, July 1, 2020 at 5:30 am
The Line: -- Over/Under:
The Lotte Giants and NC Dinos face off in KBO baseball action on Wednesday morning in the United States. Like the other games so far this season, there will be no fans in attendance for this game. In the first game of this series the Lotte Giants came away with a 10-8 victory.
The Lotte Giants currently sit at .500 after winning the last two games, and they have to feel great about winning the first game of this series against the Dinos. . Over the last five games the Lotte Giants won three of their five games. This isn’t an elite offense, but putting up 10 runs in the first game has to feel good.
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 15 losses. Even though this is a dominant team, they haven’t been as strong as they were early in the season. The offense was good in game one, but the pitching staff let them down, a thing that has let them down the last couple of weeks.
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.
Won-sam Jang will get the start for the Lotte Giants, while Chang-mo Koo will get the start for the NC Dinos. Jang has an 0-1 record and an ERA of 15.00 while, Koo has a 6-0 record and an ERA of 1.37.
The weather in this game will be clear with little wind that shouldn’t have an impact on the game.
Koo has been lights out this year for the Dinos and he is going to be the difference in this game. Look for Koo to lock down the Lotte Giants offense and they will have no issue cruising to an easy victory. Back them on the run line or -2.5.
