The Doosan Bears and NC Dinos face off on Friday 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 but in the second game the Doosan Bears found success coming away with a 5-4 victory.
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 offense has been good all season but during the playoffs, it’s actually been the pitching staff that has had to lead them to success. Over the first two games of this series the Doosan Bears have scored only eight runs, but the pitching staff found success in the second game giving up only four runs. The last game, the Doosan Bears gave up three runs in the ninth inning but they found ust enough pitching to come away with a victory.Jae-ho Kim was the best offensive player driving in two runs and one home 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 in the first game. In the second game though it was the bats that were ice cold early in the game and even though they made the comeback late, it wasn’t enough as they were defeated by a run. The Dinos have leaned on their offense all season and that will need to continue in this game.
Mike Wright will get the start for the NC Dinos and coming into this game he sits with an 11-9 record and an ERA of 4.68.
Won-jon Choi will get the start for the Doosan Bears and coming into this game he sits with a 10-2 record and an ERA of 3.80.
This game will be played inside the Sky Dome so there will be no concern about weather.
Wright has been one of the worst starting pitchers for the NC Dinos and that will continue in this game. Look for Choi to have a big start for the Doosan Bears and for the Bears offense to find success and that will lead to them coming away with a victory.
