He failed to attack the American starting Ryan properly and ended up scoring no goals until the 4th inning.

He was chased by Park Hae-min's just-in-time hit in the 5th inning, who fell 2-0, but Kang Baek-ho struck a blow in the continued one-out 1st and 2nd base, and failed to equalize.

Eui-ri Lee, a 19-year-old rookie who appeared after taking a break for only three days, gave up two runs until the fifth inning and continued her hopes, but the relief team, which was activated from the sixth, completely collapsed.

Five pitchers appeared only in the sixth inning, conceding four hits and two walks, and conceding five points in large numbers.

In the 7th inning, Oh Ji-hwan's one RBI hit came, but he could not pursue any more and failed to reach the finals for the second time in a row as he lost 7-2 to the United States.
