Japan meets South Korea in East Asian-final
TIANJIN (China) - Japan and South Korea will face each other in the final of the baseball-tournament on the East Asian Games on Monday in the Chinese city of Tianjin. Earlier in the day, host China meets Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) in the bronze medal-game. In the preliminary round, China won vs. Taipei, which was only their third international win against the island-team.

At the Tianjin Sports Center Baseball Field, Japan shutout Taipei 6-0 in the semi-final on Sunday (October 13) and decided the game early with a 5-run rally in the second inning. South Korea won in the other semi-final with an 8-3 score vs. China.

Strong Japanese pitching held the Taiwanese batters to only four basehits. During the preliminary round, Taiwan stunned the international baseball world by handing Japan an 11-0 loss in seven innings. Yao-lin Wang, who started that game against Japan, was back on the mound today. But this time, Japan made better contact and took a 5-0 lead in the second inning when Wang walked three batters and gave up three hits. Japan added another run in the fourth inning, but then was held scoreless in the remainder of the game.

This year, Wang concluded his fourth season in the organization of the Chicago Cubs. The 22-year old righthander pitched for Dayton Cubs in Single-A Advanced and appeared in 24 games, eight as a starter. He was 3-4 with four saves.
