[8/20 Baseball Game Report] Korea Defeats France, Tomorrow’s Game Determines Taiwan’s Entrance to the Super Round | 中文 | 한국어

The baseball game between France and Korea occurred today. While France had won their previous game with Taiwan’s team, their performance had dramatically worsened. The pitcher could not control the ball. Not only did he gave 9 base on balls to Korea, but he also threw numerous wild pitches. In addition, due to a mistake made by the defense, an opportunity for a double play was lost.

By the second inning, Korea earned five points. During the fourth inning, Korea’s batter, Choi Kung-Mo whose jersey number is six, hit a homerun. Furthermore, during the seventh inning, France’s pitcher and infielder made frequent mistakes, which gave Korea the chance to fill the bases countless times and obtain an extra six points. On top of that, Korea’s pitchers managed to suppress France’s batting lineup, allowing France to score only three hits throughout the whole game. In the end, the final score was 12:0.
