In the first inning, South Korea had runners on first and second with no outs. However, in the second inning, Moon Bo-kyung led off with a double to right field. A wild pitch loaded the bases and Kang Baek-ho grounded out to third, but Kim Joo-won’s sacrifice fly to left-center scored the first run of the inning. Back-to-back singles by Kim Hyung-jun and Kim Sung-yoon brought in another run on a wild pitch.

Moon Dong-ju pitched three scoreless innings, giving up two hits and striking out three.

Meanwhile, heavy raindrops fell during the game, prompting the Taiwanese bench to call for a rain delay. If the final is rained out by the eighth day, Chinese Taipei will be able to take home the gold medal under the winner-take-all rule.
