KT Wiz Preview

KT for their part have looked horrible on the year at times pitching the ball with a team ERA of 8.04. The Wiz are now sitting on an 0-3 record, but it is not from the lack of offense. The KT team is hitting the ball at a clip of .283 with a single homer on the season so far.

The Wiz still have a litany of players who have managed to hit perfect on the year, but they barely have any plate appearances. The lone homer for the Wiz has come of the bat of Mel Rojas Jr.. Bae Jeong-dae has ended up being the best hitter for run production for the Wiz with a total of 4 runners brought home.

Ko Young-pyo is the starter the Wiz are handing the ball to. Last year Young-pyo was impressive with a 2.78 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP all while posting a 12-7 record. He did throw in a total of 28 games with 27 of those games being a start. Ko did go deeper in his game with a 174 2/3 innings pitched while allowing only 181 hits and 7 homers, but struck out 119 while walking only 19 batters.

Bears vs Wiz Pick: KT Wiz

This will shock some people, but we are going to take the KT Wiz to win in this game. The Wiz have the better starter on the mound and while the Wiz have not really been able to hit well for power or run production overall, the Wiz have been able to hang in close with the opponent. Look for the Wiz to rely on the arm of Ko Young-pyo and his ability to go deeper into games to secure the win.
