Game Preview

The Lions have a slim chance to make the playoffs unless they have a dramatic turnaround in the final weeks of the regular season, and facing the Eagles might be exactly what they need. Hanwha are sitting dead last in the standings with just 21 wins out of 82 games, and they're already planning for what they're going to do in the 2021 KBO season. The pitching matchup favors the Lions, as Tae In Won will get the nod for Samsung and Warwick Saupold will make the start for Hanwha in a duel of righties. Won didn't have a good performance when he faced the Eagles the last time out, but he has a strong 3.82 ERA this season, so the consistency is there. As for Saupold, he has allowed three or more earned runs in each of his last eight starts. He owns a 7.42 ERA and a 1.58 WHIP with 1.2 HR/9 in 43.2 innings during that stretch.
