Korea defeated China 22-2 in the last game of the first round of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC). However, after losing to Australia and Japan earlier, Korea finished the tournament in third place in Group B.
On the 13th at the Tokyo Dome in Tokyo, Japan, Korea won the 5th cold game, 22-2, against China in the final round 4 match of Group B of the 1st round.
In the game, Park Kun-woo and Kim Ha-seong hit home runs, and Lee Jung-hoo also posted 4 RBIs with 2 hits and 1 walk, showing active offensive power.메이저사이트
As a result, he broke all records of winning the most points and the most points difference in a single WBC game. The previous record for the most points scored in a match was Japan’s 18-2 score against China in the 1st WBC in 2006. The largest score difference was also in the same tournament, when the United States beat South Africa 17-0.
However, the victory on this day was not enough to appease the disappointment of this WBC tournament. This is because Australia, in the same group, defeated the Czech Republic 8-3, finishing second in the group with 3 wins and 1 loss, confirming their advance to the quarterfinals. It was the first time Australia had advanced to a higher tournament without being knocked out in the group stage.
On the other hand, Korea, which had previously lost to Australia and Japan, finished third with 2 wins and 2 losses, and could not avoid being eliminated in the first round for the third time in a row by the WBC.
The Korean national team, which ended the tournament early, will return to Incheon International Airport via Narita Airport in Tokyo at 2:00 pm on the 14th.
Kim Ha-seong (San Diego Padres) and Tommy Hyeon-su Edman (St. Louis Cardinals), who play in the Major League Baseball (MLB), head straight from Tokyo to the United States.
