This bad practice, full-body sliding. The Korean baseball team showed its appearance only in the last game.
Korea won a 22-2 5th cold game victory against China in Group B of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) held at Tokyo Dome, Japan on the 13th. Korea had already failed to advance to the quarterfinals before the match, but ended the tournament with a sweeping victory in the last game of the group stage.
On this day, Korea started the game in a heartbreaking atmosphere. This is because Australia has already recorded 3 wins and 1 loss after defeating the Czech Republic in the daytime game, and has confirmed the two teams advancing to the quarterfinals of Group B along with Japan (4 wins). Even if Korea defeated China, it was 2 wins and 2 losses, so it could not advance to the quarterfinals.토토사이트
With the results already decided, the national team also made significant changes to the lineup. Coach Lee Kang-cheol said, “There are players who are not feeling well,” but all of the main players such as Choi Jeong, Yang Eui-ji, Kim Hyeon-soo, Park Byeong-ho, and Tommy Edman were left out of the starting lineup.
The players who filled the lineup on their behalf played a big role. It was true that the Chinese pitching staff’s skills were remarkably low, but their efforts to get on base were brilliant. Park Kun-woo led the team with 3 hits (1 home run) and 5 RBIs, Lee Ji-young, Park Hae-min, and Kang Baek-ho had 3 hits, and Oh Ji-hwan, Choi Ji-hoon, and Lee Jung-hoo each had 2 hits. Kim Hye-seong also performed well with 1 hit, 2 walks, 3 RBIs and 3 points.
In the third inning, Korea had a chance to load bases with Oh Ji-hwan bunt in the third inning. Then, Choi Ji-hoon made a bunt hit using his quick feet in the 1st and 3rd bases, with a 6-2 lead.
n addition, Park Hae-min, who suffered an injury to his hand while bunt, threw the Chinese infield into confusion with two consecutive bunt hits. Korea scored 8 runs only in the 3rd inning, adding to the hunting of Chinese pitchers.
Reporter Michael Claire, who covered the WBC, said, “Korea continues to bunt, bunt, and bunt, and they all turned it into a hit. It’s like a dream.”
Park Geon-woo in the 4th inning and Kim Ha-seong in the 5th inning hit a home run to create a cold game requirement, showing exciting batting ability after a long time. Rather than waiting leisurely just because the opponent is one move down, he has the ability to create hits. Wouldn’t the atmosphere of the national team have been different if they had played in the first match against Australia? It is a deeply regrettable ending.
