Are they jealous of South Korea’s gold medal bid? It’s raining heavily at Xiaoxing Baseball Stadium.
South Korea’s baseball team, looking to win its fourth consecutive Asian Games title, is playing the final game of the Hangzhou Asian Games against Chinese Taipei at the Xiaoxing Baseball Stadium near Hangzhou, Zhejiang province, China, on Sunday.
Today’s game will be a rematch between Moon Dong-joo and Lin Yumin, who faced off in their group stage game on Aug. 2. Lin Yumin pitched six shutout innings for Taiwan in a 0-4 shock loss to South Korea.
Just like four days earlier, Moon gave up a leadoff double to Cheung Jong-zer in the top of the first inning, but unlike then, he got out of the inning by striking out Lin Anker at second and third. The second inning ended with a three-run double play. In the bottom of the third inning, he was hit by a pitch but did not score.
After missing runners on first and second in the first inning, South Korea scored two runs in the top of the second to take a 2-0 lead.
After a light drizzle throughout the day, it began to rain heavily at the Xiaoxing Stadium shortly after the start of the game. The raindrops are fine, but the amount of rainfall is enough to turn the field white. It’s enough to make you worry that the game will be canceled. It’s hard to use a laptop in the outdoor press box with the raindrops flying around.
In the KBO, if a game is canceled before the fifth inning due to rain, it is a no-game and resumed the next day. If the game is suspended after the fifth inning, it becomes a rain cold game or a suspended game if the offense and defense are unbalanced.메이저놀이터
However, today’s game is different. The KBO confirmed with the Asian Games Organizing Committee that “the game will continue on the morning of the 8th as a suspended game even if the game is finally suspended before the 5th inning.”
Spectators supporting both teams are cheering fiercely for their pride. The cheers are deafening.
