The youth baseball team won its third game at the Baseball World Cup and won two games in a row.
The Korean youth baseball team, led by coach Lee Young-bok, participated in the Group A preliminary round of the 31st World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) U-18 Baseball World Cup (World Youth Baseball Championship) held at the Intercontinental Stadium in Taichung, Taiwan on the 4th (Korean time). In the third game, they won 3-0 against Australia. The previous day (3rd), they defeated the Czech Republic 14-1.
Korea’s starting lineup is as follows: Lee Chung-heon (center fielder), Jeong An-seok (second baseman), Yeo Dong-geon (first baseman), Park Ji-hwan (shortstop), Lee Seung-min (left fielder), Cho Hyun-min (third baseman), Lee Yul-ye (catcher), Sang-jun Lee (designated hitter), and Yeon Jun-won (right fielder). I made a plan. The starting pitcher is Yook Seon-yeop.
The game was tightly tied at 0-0 until the third inning. Korea’s attack in the first inning ended with Lee Chung-heon hitting a fly ball, Jeong An-seok hitting a grounder, and Yeo Dong-geon hitting a fly ball to the outfield.메이저사이트
The balance was broken in the 4th inning. In the bottom of the 4th inning, the first batter, Yeo Dong-gun, reached base with a strike and no out. Then, during Park Ji-hwan’s at-bat, the opponent’s wild pitch sent Yeo Dong-gun all the way to second base.
Ji-hwan Park chose to walk, and Hyun-min Cho walked on an intentional pitch. Then, in the next at-bat, Lee Yul-ye hit a timely double to the right-field line.
We didn’t score any extra points, but it was enough. Starting pitcher Yook Seon-yeop continued his pitching without giving up any points. Yook Seon-yeop, who had not given up a single run until the 6th inning, went on the mound in the 7th inning and caught the first batter with a ground ball in front of the shortstop before giving up a double.
Then the bench put Taek-yeon Kim up, overcoming the crisis of allowing a run with one out and two bases on base. Taek-yeon Kim struck out two and preserved the team victory.
