The Lions are now sitting on a record of 2-1 on the season. The Lions are hitting at a clip of .325 as a team with 2 homers, but have posted a 4.24 ERA.

The Lions do have Kim Jae-hyuk who has not missed on the year so far when it comes to hits.

The player who has brought home the most runs is Young-woong and he has managed to get 4 RBIs on the year.

LG Twins Preview

LG heads to this game here after getting the win holding a share of second place in the KBO with the Lions and multiple other teams at a 2-1 mark. The Twins are hitting at a clip of .299 with a homer, but have been impressive at times pitching the ball with a 4.33 ERA.

LG has a pair of hitters that are hitting at a clip of .444 on the year and they are Moon Sung-ju and Shin Min-Jae. The power hitting has come off the bat of Hong Chang-ki who has hit a single homer. He also leads the Twins in bringing home the runners with 4 RBIs.

Lions vs Twins Pick: Samsung Lions

The secret to this game is the pitching of Won Tae-in. He pitched great last year and managed to pick up only a handful of wins. However, in this game he will keep the Lions close enough to turn over a winning game to the bullpen. The big question is if the bullpen can keep it together long enough to secure the win and we think that they can do that in this game here.
