The Doosan Bears and NC Dinos face off on Wednesday morning in the United States in the KBO baseball final.
In the first game of this final series it was the NC Dinos who came away with a 5-3 victory against the Doosan Bears.
The NC Dinos got a bye all the way to this series because they were the best team in the KBO all season. While the Doosan Bears had to win a couple of series to get here.
The Doosan Bears come into this game off a series against KT Wiz Suwon where they were able to win three of the four games. The offense really wasn’t that great during the last series, but the pitching staff has been strong and that has led to the success.In the first game of this series the pitching staff only gave up five runs, but once again the offense let them down not scoring runs and that led to the defeat.Kyoung-Min Hurt did have three hits, but he didn’t drive in any runs and he scored only one run.
The NC Dinos were the best team in the KBO all season and I had some concerns about the long layoff heading into this game, but clearly it wasn’t a big problem for them. The Dinos opened up the scoring with a run in a first game, and in the third inning they added three more. Pitcher Drew Rucinski did run into some problems in the fifth and six inning, but the bullpen came in and shut them down, not giving up any more runs. The Dinos do have the best offense in the KBO so even if the pitching staff struggles, they still can make up for it.
Chris Flexen will get the start for the Doosan Bears and coming into this game he sits with an 8-4 record and an ERA of 3.01.
Chang-moo Koo will get the start for the NC Dinos and coming into this game he sits with a 9-0 record and an ERA of 1.74.
This game will be played inside the Sky Dome so there will be no concern about the weather.
Koo has been lights out this season and there is no reason to believe it’s going to be any different in this game. Look for the Doosan Bears to struggle to score and the NC Dinos will win this game on the run line. The under is also the strong play in this game.
