No matter how you think about it, 3 runs against the Czech Republic are uncomfortable. It was a score that did not have to be given because of defensive mistakes and wild shooting. If the elimination is decided due to those 3 runs, there is no choice but 메이저놀이터 to be easy.
Korea, led by coach Kang-Cheol Lee, will play the final round of Group B in the first round of the 2023 World Baseball Classic (WBC) against China at Tokyo Dome, Japan at 7:00 pm on the 13th.
There is no way for Korea to reach the quarterfinals on its own. After losing to Australia on the 9th and Japan on the 10th, Korea narrowly beat the Czech Republic on the 12th. On the 13th at 12:00 noon, if the Czech Republic with 1 win and 2 losses fails to beat Australia with 2 wins and 1 loss, it will be difficult for Korea to advance to the quarterfinals even if it defeats China.
However, if the Czech Republic beats Australia, there is a slim chance. Assuming Korea defeats China, Korea, Czech Republic and Australia are tied at 2-2. Ranking in order of minimum run rate (runs allowed/defense out count), minimum earned run rate (run run/defense out count), and team batting average. The minimum run rate, minimum earned run rate, and team batting average apply only to matches between teams with the same win rate.
Korea, which has already played Australia and the Czech Republic, lost a total of 11 points by allowing 8 runs against Australia and 3 runs against the Czech Republic, with a defensive outcount of 54 (18 innings). Accordingly, the run rate is 0.204.
Even if the Czech Republic, which currently has 7 runs in 24 outs (8 innings), wins the match against Australia, Korea needs at least 4 runs to advance to the next round.
If Korea hadn’t given 3 points against the Czech Republic, it might have been much more advantageous. The run rate is 0.148. In this case, even if the Czech Republic gave only one point to Australia, Korea could lead.
Of course, this is a futile assumption. It doesn’t matter if the Czech Republic loses to Australia. Still, if the Czech Republic wins but loses because of the minimum run rate, there is no doubt that it will remain regretful.
