The Republic of Korea was in the middle of a commanding lead over Australia in the second inning when Yun Min Goo scored again to add to the lead. Yun Min would do a lot of that in one of the best performances in the Cal Ripken World Series. To describe his performance a in word; dominant. He went three for three batting with two singles, a double, and an RBI. He also added 3 runs to his game resume. He was simply uncontainable just like his team was Uncontainable. Yun Min was not the only member of his team to have a dominant game. Jeon Se Hoon would finish the game with a single, a double, 2 runs, and 2 RBI’s himself. Park Kun Hyoung also chipped a single, a double, and a RBI. All but two players had a hit and all. It four had runs. It was simple Korea’s day.
There wasn’t much Australia could do. They looked outmatched in every facet of the game as Korea Dominated from start to finish. Korea would go up 1-0 after the first inning but after the flood gates opened. Korea would score 4 runs in the 2nd while Australia remained unable to get on the bases. However it was in the third inning where the game truly got out of reach. Korea would hang 12 runs on Australia in absolute blitzkrieg.
Australia’s Jackson Grounds would record the only base of the night for Australia in what must have been a discouraging loss.
The Republic of Korea looked to be the superior team from the start and it played out that way
