WBC: JPN-KOR Tonight

Posted in Uncategorized by minoroots on 03/17/2009

Yu Darvish pitching tonight for team Japan. He’ll face Korea’s talented lefty, Bong Jung-keun. World Baseball Classic official website

This is the 3rd time in this tourney that Japan will meet Korea. Japan blew the game open in their first meeting, 14-2 (game called in the 7th inning per the mercy rule), but Korea held on to win a pitcher’s duel in the 2nd match up, 1-0.

There’s a lot of history and controversy between Japan & Korea’s WBC meetings, with Japan winning the inagural WBC despite Korea beating Japan in 2 out of 3 meetings last year. Japan lost twice to Korea in the qualifying rounds, but moved onto the Championship by defeating Korea in the semi-finals.

Ichiro, on facing Korea again tonight:

“It’s like a girl you said goodbye to, and then you bump into the same girl again on the street so many times, because there’s a destiny to meet again.

“We might as well get married if we are going to meet this frequently.”

Should be a great match up. May the best team win!
