After winning Team Kingdom Of The Netherlands, the Chinese Taipei team again came into action in the afternoon game. Against Japan’s leader, the right line was continued, because this opponent was also bound to the victory. This is the ticket for the final of Sunday.
Already in the first inning, the team emerged from Taiwan: Han Lin made the 0-1 on a single by Yi Hung Chen. In their third inning, the margin increased when Ju Liang Tai got out of a hit pitcher and hit a wild pitch. In the fifth Taiwanese inning, this margin became even more widespread when Tzu Chieh Lin was already in scoring position through a three-point move. He joined Ju Liang Tai after Han Lin produced a single.
A part of the 0-4 backlog cleared when Yudai Nakanishi ended up in a double jump and then came in via a single hit by Pinch Hitter Hirayama. An inning later, even 2-4 came when Masaki Otani came home after a fielders choice of Nakanishi.
Chinese Taipei scored no more in this game, so it was a matter for Japan to reverse the tide with a final slop, but it did not matter, so 2-4 was also the final.
