‘Tokyo Dome Disaster’ Korea collapsed in Australia… Red light to advance to the quarterfinals

The baseball team suffered a shocking defeat to Australia in their first WBC match.

The red light was turned on to advance to the quarterfinals.


Yang Eui-ji, who hit an international home run for the first time in 8 years in the 5th inning, succeeded in reversing, but the relief pitchers gave up a home run to Australian batters one after another and collapsed.

In the 8th inning, the Australian mound got into a hunt and chased it by one point, but eventually failed to overturn it. 

It was a pity that the pitching staff gave up three home runs, and Kang Baek-ho, who was out even after hitting a hit after falling off the base, lacked concentration on the base.

The national team, unable to guarantee advance to the quarterfinals, will play the second game against their archrival Japan tomorrow.

“There is a special match between Korea and Japan, but we have to win in order to advance to the quarterfinals, so we will do our best.”

Japan, which consists of super-luxurious members such as Major League MVP Ohtani, is a strong candidate for the championship. 

The national team put up veteran Kim Gwang-hyun, who has shown good performances against Japan, as a starting pitcher.

Attention is focusing on whether the baseball team, driven to the edge of the cliff, will be able to defeat Japan and succeed in reversing the atmosphere.
