The South Korean national baseball team at the Asian Games, led by head coach Ryu Joong-il, is playing the final match against Taiwan at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games at 7 p.m. on the 7th (Korea Standard Time) at Xiaoxing Baseball Stadium in Hangzhou, Zhejiang Province, China.
South Korea, which is seeking its fourth consecutive Asian Games title, collapsed to Taiwan 0-4 on the 2nd. At that time, the main reason for the defeat was that Taiwan’s left-hander Lin Yu-min was completely blocked with six scoreless innings. Lin Yu-min also appeared in the final.
Lin Yu-min is a player with heavy fastballs and sharp sliders. In particular, the fastballs and sliders that ride on the outer border line of the left batter are excellent. If the outer zone is held too wide, Korean left-handed hitters will inevitably suffer.
Lin Yu-min struck out based on a good command from the top of the first inning against the leadoff hitter Kim Hye-sung. He then drove to first and second bases with one out in the top of the first inning, but he caught Noh Si-hwan with a double play to second base and passed the inning without losing a point. 토토사이트
Lin Yu-min, who was cruising, was shaken by Moon Bo-kyung’s double next to right field in the top of the second inning. He then threw a wild pitch against Kang Baek-ho and faced a crisis of third base with no outs. He put Kang Baek-ho to rest with a grounder to third base, but allowed Kim Joo-won an RBI sacrifice fly to left field and gave up his first run.
Lin Wimin later hit a left-handed hit by Kim Hyung-joon and a double next to left field by Kim Sung-yoon, leading to two outs and runners on second and third bases. He then threw a wild pitch against Kim Hye-sung and recorded an additional one run.
Then he came out of the Taiwan bench and protested. He even wore a towel and showed an emphasis on rain. Appealing that the pitcher was pitching hard in the rain, it seemed to convey a message about the suspension of rain.
If the final is canceled by rain until the 8th, Taiwan will take the gold medal based on the winner’s principle with South Korea. In fact, heavy raindrops are falling at Xiaoxing Baseball Stadium. However, the game is still unfolding smoothly as of the top of the third inning, and Korea is leading 2-0.
