‘Finalist’ Ryu Jung-il “It’s been hard, but we’ll win gold”

China’s head coach Ryu Jung-il

Celebrates with his players after their 8-1 win over South Korea during the Baseball Super Round 2 match

between South Korea and China at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games at the Shaoxing Baseball and

Softball Sports Center 1 on June 6 in Hangzhou, China. South Korea will play Chinese Taipei for the gold

medal in the return match on Sunday.

After beating China to reach the final, South Korean baseball coach Ryu Jung-il has vowed to win the gold medal against Taiwan.

South Korea defeated China 8-1 in the second game of the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games Baseball Super

Round on Saturday at the Shaoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center 1 in China.

Starting pitcher Won Tae-in

Earned the win, shutting down the Chinese bats with six shutout innings, while Kang Baek-ho pounded

out three hits, including a home run. Kim Joo-won also had a two-run double.

After defeating Japan and China the day before, South Korea is now 2-1 in the Super Round and will

advance to the final regardless of the outcome of the remaining games.

“We got an important game,” said Ryu after the game. Won Tae-in pitched well until the sixth inning, and

our catcher Kim Hyung-joon had a good lead. The batting lineup was encouraged by Kim Joo-won’s two-

run homer in the first inning and, most importantly, Kang Baek-ho’s resurgence.”

The Korean batting lineup was in full swing on the day, and Ryu, who had been struggling with the ups

and downs of his batting lineup in previous games, was relieved to see his worries lifted ahead of the final.

“Tomorrow is the last game, and I hope the batsmen can hit well until the end,” Liu said, hoping to carry the momentum into the final.

Kwak Bin, who is suffering from gallbladder, did not appear in the match.

“I was going to play him behind Won Tae-in today, but I didn’t because of the early score. We’ll play him

tomorrow,” Ryu said of his plans for Kwak Bin.

South Korea lost 0-4 to Chinese Taipei in the second round of the group stage on Feb. 2. They were

knocked to their knees after failing to capture Chinese Taipei ace Lin Yeou-min, and a rematch in the final is likely.

Liu said,

“Tomorrow, Taiwan will send out a left-handed pitcher (Lin Yeou-min) who played against us in the

qualifiers. We’ve been beaten once, so we’ll have to prepare well and attack them.”

In conclusion, Liu said, “It’s been a hard road to the final. We are determined to win the gold medal

against Taiwan.” 카지노사이트존
