The national team had to cry over bad weather again.
On June 6, the final game of the preliminary round between Korea and Puerto Rico in Taichung City, Taiwan was once again not completed.
With a 5-1 lead after two innings, the Koreans were in position to finish second in Group A. However, the game was declared suspended at the beginning of the third inning due to rain, and it was decided to move the suspended game to Taipei on the morning of the 7th.
In the end, the team was forced to play a doubleheader in inclement weather.
Puerto Rico’s 2-16 record against Chinese Taipei, which included a five-inning cold-game loss, means that the final game of the preliminary round against Korea will also be played in less than ideal conditions. If Korea wins as expected, they will play the first game of the Super Round against Group B runner-up Japan in the afternoon.
With the World Baseball Softball Confederation’s (WBSC)메이저사이트 mismanagement of the tournament once again on the chopping block, the team is faced with the worst possible situation: a one-game matchup against an opponent that even at its best would be difficult to prepare for.
