This is a preview for Game 1 of the doubleheader.
The Hanwha Eagles have had all kinds of issues this season and coming into this game they sit with 39 wins, 84 losses, and two draws. Hanwha currently sits in 10th place in the KBO and they have lost three of the last four games. Over the last four games the Hanwha Eagles offense has really struggled and in this game it’s probably going to take another good pitching performance. Si-hwan Noh has been the best player for the Hanwha Eagles hitting ten home runs. Kwang-min Song has hit eight home runs and driven in 33 RBI’s.
On the other side of this matchup is the Kia Tigers who comes into this game with 64 wins and 58 losses which puts them in sixth place of the KBO. Coming into this game the Kia Tigers have lost four games in a row and over the last three games Kia’s offense has really struggled scoring only eight runs total. Preston Tucker has been the best offensive player for hitting 29 home runs and driving in 95 RBI’s. Hyung-woo Choi has also hit 19 home runs and driven in 86 RBI’s.
Min-Jae Jang will get the start for the Hanwha Eagles and coming into this game he sits with a 2-5 record and an ERA of 5.96.
Hyun-jong Yang will get the start for the Kia Tigers and coming into this game he sits with a 9-8 record and an ERA of 4.68.
The weather in this game is expected to be partly cloudy with a slight wind blowing in from left field.
These are two offenses who have been bad, but both starting pitchers have struggled this year and that is going to continue in this game. Look for both teams to run up the score and for this game to go well over the total.
