What kind of match was there in the World Baseball Classic (WBC), which has already celebrated its 5th since the first tournament in 2006?
MLB.com, the official homepage of Major League Baseball, announced on the 7th (Korean time) that it selected and announced the top 10 best games among the 2006, 2009, 2013 and 2017 WBC games.
Among them, the final match of the 2009 tournament, which remained as a bad memory for the Korean baseball team, was selected as the game that was evaluated as the best match.
At that time, Korea met their archrival Japan in the final and lost 3-5 after extra time to give up the championship. Following a loss in the 2006 WBC semifinals, he once again took a knee at the WBC.
In Korea, Bong Joong-geun took the lead in the third inning, but Choo Shin-soo hit a home run off Japanese starting pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma in the fifth inning to balance the game 1-1.
Afterwards, Korea gave up 1 run each in the 7th and 8th innings, so the defeat was clear, but Lee Dae-ho’s sacrifice fly in the 8th inning and Lee Bum-ho’s dramatic timely hit in the 9th tied the game 3-3.
Even at the time of the overtime game, Korea’s momentum was better. However, in the 10th inning of overtime, Ichiro Suzuki hit Lim Chang-yong with 2 RBIs in a timely situation with 2 outs on 2nd and 3rd base.
After an unfortunate run, Korea let the lead batter on base in the 10th inning of overtime, but after that the hitters failed to attack Japan’s Yu Darvish and eventually lost by 2 runs.
Korea will meet Japan in the second round of Group B in the first round of the 2023 WBC finals on the 10th. We are looking forward to what kind of match we will play against Japan this time. 메이저사이트
