Lotte Giants vs Hanwha Eagles 4/4/24 Pick: Hanwha Eagles

The change in the starter for this game after the rainout does change the dynamic of the game to a point. However, one thing that is holding true is the fact that the Hanwha Eagles are hitting a lot better than Lotte. Now, one thing that we do see happening with the change in the starting pitcher is the game will be closer than what we expected last time in the score, but still we like Hanwha to come out on top.
