Team Korea defeated the Philippines 8-2 in a super-round game at the 30th Asian Baseball Championship at the Taipei Dome in Taiwan on Monday. The Philippines rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game in the fourth inning.
The Koreans took an early lead in the first inning when Park Joo-chan and Jung Jun-young reached on two fielder’s choices. With the score 2-2, Kim Bum-seok and Lee Min-joon came home on an error to regain the lead.굿모닝토토 주소
The team slowly piled up runs in the fifth, seventh, and eighth innings, with Na Seung-yeop being the standout among the batters with three hits.
On the mound, Jang Ji-soo was followed by Shin Heon-min, Jung Hyun-soo, Kim Dong-hyuk, Kang Min-gu, and Cho Byung-heon, who combined for 10 strikeouts. Shin was the second pitcher to get the win.
After winning one of the two Super Round games, the team will face Japan in the final game of the Super Round on Sept. 9.
Meanwhile, in the other Super Round game on the same day, Japan defeated Chinese Taipei 1-0 in 10 extra innings to end Chinese Taipei’s undefeated streak. If the Chinese Taipei team manages to catch Japan, the three nations could tie for first place with three wins and one loss. In that case, we’ll have to look at the TQBs to determine the rankings.
