2011.7.29 Weekend Picks: KBO* Daegu Samsung Lions (48-2-33) at Seoul LG Twins (41-41)
* Jamsil Baseball Stadium, Seoul
* Friday 6:30 p.m., Saturday and Sunday 5 p.m.
Heavy rain has canceled many KBO games, but the Daegu Samsung Lions managed to sneak in a couple games with the Gwangju Kia Tigers this week.
Daegu’s starting pitchers have stepped up in recent games. Jang Won-sam allowed just two runs in seven innings on Tuesday, while Yun Sung-hwan allowed one run through seven on Wednesday. All-Star Cha Woo-chan is scheduled to pitch on the weekend.
The fourth place Seoul LG Twins haven’t played since last Thursday, which means they may have either lost their rhythm or saved up energy - or both.
The Twins’ top three starters - Park Hyun-jun, Benjamin Jukich and Radhames Liz - are expected to pitch against the Lions this weekend.
