Kia Tigers vs SSG Landers 4/18/24 Pick: Kia Tigers

How can you go against the best hitting team in the KBO facing a pitcher that cannot get their ERA under 14? Well, I am waiting to hear, but for me I am not going to go against the Tigers here. I think the Tigers will be able to get an early start in the game and run Dugger out of the game and then once the lead is established be able to continue to build upon it.
