The Kia Tigers and the Lotte Giants face off in KBO baseball action on Sunday morning in the United States. There will be a limited number of fans in attendance for this game. In the first game of this series the Tigers came away with a 3-2 victory but in the second game, the Lotte Giants got some revenge winning 7-3.
The Kia Tigers currently sit with 38 wins and 31 losses which is good enough for fifth place in the KBO. With all the rain in South Korea this week it’s been a bit of an odd week with the team only playing three games. Each of the three games the Kia Tigers offense has been an issue and they need to get the offense going.
On the mound for the Kia Tigers is Preston Tucker who comes into this game having hit 16 home runs and driving in 55 RBI’s. Hyung-woo Choi has also been good for the squad hitting 10 home runs and 45 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Lotte Giants who come into this game having won 34 games and losing 35 games. Coming into this game the Giants have won four of their last five games, but they can’t seem to get back to the .500 mark. Jun-woo Jeon has been the star for the Giants hitting 13 home runs and 39 RBI’s. Dae-ho Lee has also been the star for Giants hitting 11 home runs and driving in 50 RBI’s.
On the mound for the Kia Tigers is Drew Gagnon while Kyung-eun Noh will get the start for the Lotte Giants. Gagnon currently sits with a 6-3 record and an ERA of 3.53 while Noh currently sits with a 3-3 record and an ERA of 5.82.
The weather is expected to be windy in this game and that could play an impact on the game. There is expected to be a 10-12 mile per hour wind blowing in from right field.
The Kia Tigers have the better pitcher and that will be the difference in this game. Look for Gagnon to lock down and that will lead to them winning this game on the money line.
