Samsung Lions (6-13) at Lotte Giants (10-8)
Wednesday, May 27, 5:30 AM EDT
RHP Won Tae-in (1-1, 4.50 ERA) vs RHP Park Se-woong (0-2, 5.93 ERA)
This matchup features two of the league's three worst teams, at least judging by last year's standings, where the Lions finished eighth out of 10 and the Giants finished last. The Giants have started this season quite respectably, currently occupying fifth place, though the Lions' struggles have continued, as they're stuck in ninth. The Giants won a 1-0 contest in the series opener, although offense could prevail in this one with a pair of unimposing pitchers on the mound. 20-year-old Won Tae-in takes the hill for the visitors. His career 4.78 ERA and 1.43 WHIP in 130 innings are mediocre at best, while his 14.0 percent strikeout rate is fairly poor. His counterpart, 24-year-old Park Se-woong, doesn't have much of a track record, either. He's struggled to a 5.93 ERA and a 1.76 WHIP this season, though he recorded a decent 4.20 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP in 12 starts last year.
