Cho Hyun-min, the second coming of the frog bunt, leads the national team to a 2-1 victory

The Korean national team confirmed its advancement to the super round by winning the fourth match of the World Youth Championships.

On the 5th, in the opening round of the 31st World Youth Baseball Championship held at the Intercontinental Baseball Stadium in Taichung, Taiwan, the national team came from behind to win 2-1 over Mexico, confirming their advancement to the super round regardless of the results of the remaining games against Puerto Rico.

The game was difficult in the beginning. Initially, there were predictions that the match against Mexico might be postponed due to the typhoon, but the game was played as is. Perhaps because of this, the first goal was allowed in the early stages due to a defensive error.

The national team, which had only had sporadic hits until the 4th inning, tied the score in the 5th inning with a timely hit by Yeon Jun-won (Busan High School). And in the 6th episode, a quite exquisite situation was created. In a chance with 1 out and 1st and 3rd bases created by a ball that hit Yeo Dong-gun (Seoul High School) and a hit by Lee Seung-min (Whimoon High School), Cho Hyun-min (Chungam High School) succeeded in touching a high ball that was difficult to bunt, and 3rd base runner Yeo Dong-gun homered. It was stepped on. It was a re-enactment of the so-called ‘frog bunt’. It was the same bunt that Commissioner Kim Jae-bak first used in the 1982 World Baseball Championship match between Korea and Japan.

The national team celebrated a 2-1 victory with Cho Hyun-min’s winning hit.

On the mound, starting pitcher Jeon Mir (Gyeongbuk High School) was followed by left-handed ace Hwang Jun-seo (Jangchung High School), who announced his comeback by pitching 5 1/3 scoreless innings with 6 strikeouts. It was the first win reported since the loss to Taiwan.

Meanwhile, Australia, which suffered a 0-3 loss to the national team the day before (the 5th), lost again 2-5 to the Czech Republic, which was considered weak in Group A, automatically eliminating its chances of advancing to the Super Round. Puerto Rico and Taiwan were postponed again due to bad weather.

A surprise occurred in Group B. The Netherlands won 1-0 over Japan. Japan, which suffered its first loss of the tournament, was tied with the United States and the Netherlands at 4 wins and 1 loss and had to wait for the Super Round schedule.온라인바카라

While the schedule in Taipei, where Group B belongs, was completed as scheduled due to no bad weather, only the postponed Group A games will be held on the 6th, which was designated as a reserve day. Due to this schedule, Puerto Rico will play a double header. Puerto Rico will play Taiwan at 10 o’clock and then immediately play the final match against the Korean national team. And the Czech Republic and Mexico will play the final match of the opening round. If Mexico wins, Australia, the Czech Republic, and Mexico will be tied with 1 win and 4 losses. If the Czech Republic wins, Mexico will have lost all of its opening rounds and the Czech Republic will be ranked 4th in Group A with 2 wins and 3 losses.
