  • Gold Medal Game: Flag of South Korea South Korea 2, Flag of Chinese Taipei Chinese Taipei 0. The pitching duel between the two teams' aces in the first round repeated, and 19-year-old Dong-ju Moon got revenge this time. He pitched 6 shutout innings with 7 strikeouts, only allowing 3 hits - all from Taiwan's leadoff batter, SS Tsung-Che Cheng. Yu-Min Lin also pitched well as he pitched 5 innings with only 2 runs allowed, all in the 2nd inning. Since Shaoxing had a heavy rain at that time, Lin's pitching was influenced and he had a wild pitch after 1B Bo-gyeong Moon's double. 3B Tzu-Hao Lin's nice play saved the run, but SS Ju-won Kim's sacrifice fly gave South Korea the lead. C Hyung-jun Kim singled, LF Seong-yoon Kim doubled and another wild pitch from Lin gave up another run. Taiwan's best chance was in the 9th inning as DH Li Lin and RF An-Ko Lin both singled, but Woo-suk Go forced 1B Nien-Ting Wu to ground into a double play to save the Gold Medal.
