Asia Winter League: KBO beats Europe 8-4


In this game Europe took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Urving Kemp led off with a single towards third base followed by a single through the middle of the infield, hit by Maick Ehmcke. Both runners advanced on a wild pitch by Sungki Min. A ground out towards first base by Federico Giordani, drove in Urving Kemp for the opening run.
But with only one out and another runner in scoring position, team Europe could not take advantage.

Lars Huijer pitched a solid game. In five innings he gave up one run, the game tier in the third inning. Lars gave up five hits and struck out five. Despite the good outing Lars only got the no-decision.

His replacement, Milvio Andreozzi, didn’t fare that well. He did not manage to get an out and gave up three runs on two hits and a walk.
His successor, Owen Ozainich, also gave up a run in the same inning but got out of the sixth without further damage.

In the seventh and the eighth, the KBO extended the lead with one run and two runs respectively. Javier Sanchez gave up the run in the seventh, and Robin Schel allowed the two runs in the eighth.

Europe on its turn scored another run in the sixth on a single to left field hit by Rashid Gerard. In the bottom of the ninth, Europe rallied to score two more runs, but that was about it.

Europe collected eight hits, against fourteen for the KBO. Urving Kemp went 2 for 4 with a walk and two runs scored. Maik Ehmcke also went 2 for 4 but scored only once. Federico Giordani went 1 for 3 with a run scored and a walk. Alberto Mineo went 1 for 4. Alessandro Deotto collected one hit in his sole at bat and Rashid Gerard went 1 for 3 with an RBI and a walk.

The four errors that Europe committed even didn’t cost them the game as all runs that the KBO scored were earned.
