Another impressive outing by the pitchers gave no chance to Australia. The running game took Korea on the scoreboard, a home run by Lee Jaejun opened the score in the top of the fourth

Korea confirmed as a group B power with another shut-out win: 13-0 in five innings against Australia.
Korea’s pitching was once again impressive. Starter Jung Mingyu was perfect over two innings. Lim Hogil, Lee Myeongjae and Han Junhui pitched one inning each without giving up a hit. Australia reached on the lone defensive error by Korea in the bottom of the fifth.

Korea wasted no time in getting to Aussie starter Simon Slapetta and catcher Kiddle. With one out, right fielder Na Hyunseo walked, then stole second. Korea followed with back to back base hits by center fielder Lee Taeoh and third baseman Lee Jaejun and then took full advantage of a passed ball, a wild pitch and a balk for a total three runs scored.

Entering the frame with a 4-0 lead, Korea broke the score open in the top of the fourth. A defensive error and Korea’s running game put Australia’s reliever Haeusler in trouble. Lee Jaejun made it 9-0 with a two-run homer.
