완패 인정한 류중일 감독 "대만 투수들 너무 강했다"

South Korean baseball's quest for a fourth consecutive Asian Games title was derailed by Chinese Taipei.

South Korea fell to Chinese Taipei 0-4 in the second game of the Baseball Group B at the Hangzhou 2022 Asian Games on Tuesday at the Shaoxing Baseball and Softball Sports Center 1 in Hangzhou, China.

South Korea, with a 1-1 record in the group stage, will advance to the Super Round if the two-win Chinese Taipei defeats the lowest-ranked Thailand on Wednesday and the two-win Chinese Taipei defeats Hong Kong.

However, even if they make it to the Super Round, South Korea will still have to play with one loss. Even if they win both games in the Super Round, they are not guaranteed a spot in the final.

"We lost, so there's nothing to say," said Ryu Jung-il in the postgame interview, "but if we can beat Japan and China in the Super Round, we'll have another chance."

"Unlike what we saw in the video, the Taiwanese pitchers' balls were very fast and their changeups were good," Ryu said. "Our batters had chances, but the Taiwanese pitchers were strong," he admitted.

"Our starter, Moon Dong-ju, pitched well," he said, "but I was disappointed when my changeup went high in the first inning and I hit a three-run homer, and I gave up a run in the fourth inning with a wild pitch."

The team is comprised of players under 먹튀검증 the age of 24 and in their fourth year of professional baseball. The decision was made in light of the controversy surrounding the selection of the team for the Jakarta-Palembang Asian Games five years ago.

However, the competition revealed serious weaknesses in the team, especially in the batting order. There was no one who could hit the ball out of the park, no one who could lead the way, and it wasn't as if the coaching staff was actively working on a game plan.

Head coach Ryu Jung-il acknowledged the offense's struggles. "We only have four players who can be used as candidates," he said, "and we have no choice but to continue with this batting lineup."

Noh Si-hwan (Hanwha), who batted third and had a double and a single, said, "We analyzed and prepared for the Taiwan game closely, but their pitchers pitched very well." "They analyzed us well," he said. "It's not over yet, so we will do our best to win the Super Round," he said.
