Korea beat China 7-1 on Thursday afternoon to move on to the final game. Taiwan beat a team of Japanese amateurs to earn their spot in the final.
KIA Tigers starter Yang Hyeon-jong threw six innings of one-run ball against China. Yang allowed only three hits, two walks and one hit batsman while striking out five. Choo Shin-soo started in right field and finished 1-1 with three walks. Choo blasted a solo homer and scored three runs. Choo must really, really not want to do his military service. First baseman Kim Tae-gyun and Park Kyeong-wan both drove in a pair of runs as Korea cruised to an easy W.
The Asian Games continue on Friday night at 7 PM Korea time.
