Taiwan’s baseball team is in the finals. If South Korea defeats China in game 6, it will set up a revenge match against Chinese Taipei in the final.
Chinese Taipei won 4-1 against China in the Baseball Super Round of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Friday at the Shaoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center in Zhejiang, China.
With the win, Chinese Taipei, which entered the Super Round with one win in the group stage against South Korea, has two wins and will advance to the final regardless of the outcome of Japan’s game on Saturday.
The Asian Games Super Round will feature the first and second place finishers from Pools A and B, with the top two teams playing for the gold medal and the bottom two teams playing for the bronze medal to determine the medal colors. However, there will be no rematches between teams that faced each other in the preliminary rounds of the group stage, and the existing win-loss results will be applied in the Super Round.
With South Korea coming into the Super Round with one loss against Chinese Taipei and Japan with one loss against China, the winning teams entered the Super Round with one win over their opponents, and it was South Korea and Chinese Taipei who had the last laugh in the fifth game.
While South Korea hasn’t yet clinched a spot in the final, their case for advancement has become very simple. A win against China would guarantee them a spot in the finals, regardless of what else happens.
Earlier in the day, the Ryu Jung-il-led Korean baseball team won 2-0 against Japan in the first game of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games Baseball Super Round at the Shaoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center 1 near Hangzhou, China on Friday.
With a win over a tough Japan and a Chinese Taipei win over China, the chances of a co-finals appearance have increased. Of course, if South Korea loses against China on the 6th, China will play Taiwan in the final. However, if Taiwan lost to China on the 5th, we would have to do some complicated math until the final game.
Now, if Korea wins the final game against China on the 6th, they will have a chance to get revenge against Taiwan in the big final on the 8th.
South Korea started the tournament on a rough note 카지노 with a 0-4 loss to Chinese Taipei in the group stage. Their pride took a beating. Without a single point, Korea was stuck in a rut and repeated its recent international struggles. Some have called it the Hangzhou disaster.
Now, all the pieces are in place. All Korea needs to win its fourth consecutive Asian Games gold medal is a victory over China on Saturday and a sweep of Chinese Taipei in the final on Sunday.
