The referee made an incomprehensible ball decision at the end of the game, but Korean baseball ended the game dramatically and came out on top, just like it did in Beijing in 2008.온라인바카라
The Korean baseball team, led by coach Ryu Joong-il, won 2-0 in the final against Chinese Taipei at the 2022 Hangzhou Asian Games held at Stadium 1 of the Baseball and Softball Sports Center in Shaoxing City, Zhejiang Province, China, on the afternoon of the 7th.
With this, Korea avenged its 0-4 loss to Taiwan in the group stage and achieved its fourth consecutive victory in the Asian Games.
On this day, Korea won the game with starting pitcher Moon Dong-ju (Hanwha) pitching well with 7 strikeouts and no runs in 6 innings, and the batting line scoring 2 runs against Taiwanese starting pitcher Lin Yu-min from the beginning.
Korea, which maintained the score of 2-0, faced its biggest crisis in the bottom of the 9th inning.
Go Woo-seok (LG), who came in as the closer, returned the lead batter to first base with a fly ball, but after one out, Lin Lee hit a right-handed hit.
Then, when Taiwan’s fourth batter Lin An-ke was at bat, the Japanese umpire started making strange ball decisions. Go Woo-seok threw both the first and second pitches into the strike zone, but the umpire seemed to have judged them low and ruled them both balls. Accordingly, Go Woo-seok threw a ball that was slightly higher than the first and second pitches and went into the center of the catcher’s mitt, but this time, the umpire ruled it was a ball.
Ko Woo-seok, who maintained his composure even after being called a ball on the first and second pitches, eventually sat down on the mound and even smiled at the Taiwanese bench as if it was somewhat absurd.
Go Woo-seok’s fourth ball went a little high, but this time the referee ruled it a strike, causing confusion.
Due to the umpire’s incomprehensible ball decision, Go Woo-seok had no choice but to throw the ball to the center so that the batter could hit at the plate. In the end, he allowed a hit to Lin An-ke, putting him in danger with one out and runners on first and second base.
This reminded me of the final against Cuba at the 2008 Beijing Olympics.
At the time, starting pitcher Ryu Hyun-jin (Toronto) went on the mound and fought back in the bottom of the 9th inning with a 3-2 lead, but the umpire started making a strange ball call with one out and two bases on base.
Ryu Hyun-jin’s ball clearly appeared to have passed the strike zone, but the umpire’s hand did not rise, and he ended up giving up two walks, putting the bases loaded with one out. During this process, catcher Kang Min-ho (Samsung) got so excited that he got into an argument with the umpire and was ejected.
But fortunately, everything had a happy ending. Like Dae-hyun Jeong, who came up as a relief pitcher 15 years ago and ended the game by turning Gurriel into a double play, Woo-seok Go also escaped the same crisis.
Afterwards, Go Woo-seok, who faced Unenting, led a double play with a ground ball to the second baseman, escaping the crisis on his own and ending the game.
Although the game was somewhat shaken by the referee’s prank-like ball decision at the end of the game, the victory belonged to Korea.
