Korea’s baseball team, led by head coach Ryu Jung-il, defeated Japan 2-0 in the first game of the
Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games Baseball Super Round on Friday at the Shaoxing Baseball and
Softball Sports Center 1 in China.
Korea (1-1 overall), who finished the group stage with a 2-1 record and came into the Super Round
as the runner-up in Group B, improved to 1-1 in the Super Round with the win over Japan.
Korea’s starting lineup was Kim Hye-sung (second base), Choi Ji-hoon (center field), Yoon Dong-hee
(right field), Noh Si-hwan (third base), Moon Bo-kyung (first base), Kang Baek-ho (designated hitter),
Kim Joo-won (shortstop), Kim Hyung-joon (catcher), and Kim Sung-yoon (left field). The only change
from the Thailand game was the catcher.
South Korea struggled to hit Japan’s starter, Shuichiro Kaga, and had a difficult time in the game.
They were hitless through the third inning and had runners on first and third with no outs in the
fourth, but were unable to score due to sloppy play. In the fifth inning, they were unable to capitalize on their scoring chances.
