The national team had a chance to steal base after second hitter Jeong An-seok got on base with a walk, and then had a chance to load the bases with one out and a runner on base thanks to Yeo Dong-geon’s infield hit in front of the third baseman and Park Ji-hwan’s hit to left.
When Lee Seung-min landed on first base with a fielder’s choice, Jeong An-seok hit home and scored the first run. When the opponent’s defense made a throw error, Yeo Dong-geon, who was heading to third base, rushed home and scored an additional run.
While national team starter Park Ki-ho completely blocked the opponent’s batting lineup until the third inning, the national team scored additional runs in the third inning thanks to Yeo Dong-geon’s walk and stolen base, and Cho Hyun-min’s infield hit.
In the top of the fourth inning, the national team scored on Lee Yul-ye’s double, Yeon Jun-won’s infield bunt hit, and Lee Chung-heon’s sacrifice fly, and scored two more runs with consecutive hits by Jeong An-seok, Yeo Dong-gun, and Park Ji-hwan, widening the gap.
The Czech Republic, which lost the will to chase against a national team that had completely secured its victory, allowed wild pitches and consecutive walks due to defensive errors and poor control of the pitcher, contributing two runs to the national team in only the fifth inning. The national team only batted once in the 7th inning, scoring a whopping 6 runs.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, Czech Republic’s No. 4 Michael reached base on a hit to left, then No. 6 Philip advanced to third base on a hit to right, and Pavel hit home on a timely hit to make up for one run. However, the national team lost Park Ji-hwan, Lee Yul-ye, and Yeon Jun-won. They beat the Czech Republic 14-1 with 14 long and short hits, including 3 hits.
Meanwhile, due to the impact of the typhoon and the ban on outdoor activities announced by the Taichung city government, the schedule for the remaining preliminary round games is flexible and will be decided based on the results of consultations between the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC), the organizing committee, and the host government. am.
