Coach Hong's decision to start CF Yang will be questioned for quite some time. Despite 2 errors contributing to South Korea scoring 7 runs in the 1st, Yang gave up 4 ER on 5 hits (including a 3-run HR) in his inning of work. Even with Yang's shaky performance, the NT still managed to rally and tie the game at 8 in the 6th inning. SK C Min-Ho Kang would then drive in the GW run in the top of the 7th inning.
Leading the way offensively for the NT was 1B Chia Chia who was 4-5 with a double and 2 RBI's.
