Japan’s baseball shock loss to China is a ‘catastrophe’… Korea loses 1, the number of cases has become complicated


China caused a surprise by defeating Japanese baseball and advanced to the super round as first place in its group. Accordingly, the Korean national baseball team’s first opponent in the Super Round was decided to be Japan, not China.

China won 1-0 against Japan in the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games Baseball Group A group stage held at the Shaoxing Baseball-Softball Sports Center in Zhejiang Province, China on the 3rd. Although the Japanese national team was made up of professional baseball players, it was almost a disaster for Chinese baseball to defeat Japan.

Japan’s professional baseball players also boast ‘semi-professional’ skills. There are several pitchers who throw fast balls approaching 150 km/h, and the fielders’ defensive fundamentals are as solid as those of professionals.

Even Korea, which is building up its power with the best pros, is always wary of Japan during the Asian Games. In fact, Japan defeated China 17-2, in a cold game in the 5th inning, in the 2018 tournament.

With this victory, China recorded all three wins in the group stage, pushing out Japan (2 wins, 1 loss) and taking first place in the group.

With China’s surprise victory, it became inevitable for Korea to revise its strategy. Korea initially anticipated Japan as first place in Group A and drew up a starting rotation. However, with Japan being pushed down to second place in the group and China rising to first place in the group, revisions to the mound operation plan are expected to be inevitable.

For Korea, which starts the Super Round with one loss, to easily advance to the finals, it would be advantageous for Taiwan to also win against both China and Japan, assuming that Korea defeats both China and Japan. In this case, Taiwan can advance to the finals with 3 wins and Korea with 2 wins and 1 loss.토토사이트

If Taiwan loses to China or Japan, Korea will be in a situation where it has to consider a number of complicated cases even if it wins everything.
