Korea’s 30th Asian Baseball Championship team, led by head coach Choi Jung-myung, defeated Palestine 19-1 in five innings in the final game of the preliminary round at the Intercontinental Stadium in Taichung, Taiwan.
The Korea Baseball Softball Association said on June 6, “Korea took the lead in the bottom of the second inning when Yoo Tae-woong (Dongwon University) hit a two-run double with runners on first and third after Na Seung-yeop (Lotte Giants) walked and an opponent’s error. In the bottom of the third inning, Jung Jun-jae (Dongguk University), who reached on an error, stole second and third and then came home on an opponent’s error, creating a run with his quick feet. After that, the Korean bats went through the order with walks and hits, scoring 11 runs with 15 batters in the bottom of the third inning to virtually decide the game.”
“In the batting order, Na Seung-yeop, batting in the No. 5 spot, reached base in every at-bat and had four RBIs, while Kim Sung-woo (LG Twins) and Yoo Tae-woong (Dongwon University) both had multi-hit games with three and two RBIs, respectively, leading to the cold victory in the fifth inning,” the Korea Baseball Softball Association continued 아톰카지노 도메인. On the mound, starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-gon (SSG Landers) threw two scoreless innings, while Lee Byung-heon (Doosan Bears), Kim Dong-hyuk (Kiwoom Heroes), and Jung Hyun-soo (Songwon University) closed out the game with one inning each.”
