And there wasn't much scoring in part two of the game. The two teams remained scoreless until the 11th inning when the crazy Olympic tiebreaker rule came into play.
China was up first with runners on first and second and manager Jim Lefebvre ordered a sacrifice to move the runners over. Fei Feng was up next for China and flied out to center that should have been deep enough to score the runner on third, Lingfen Sun. But Sun didn't tag up after the catch and instead was doubled off to end the inning.
In the bottom of the 11th, Seungyuop Lee hit a one-out single to score Jongwook Lee for the game-winning run.
Korea is now tied with Cuba atop the standings at 4-0. Japan and the USA are 2-2. Canada, the Netherlands, China, and Taiwan are 1-3.
The top four teams advance. Korea and Cuba will likely both advance (one of them has to). Japan plays Canada, China, and the USA. The USA will play China and Taiwan in addition to Japan.
Of the 1-3 teams, Canada is the only one with a good shot of making it into the top four. Canada would need to win its final three games, against Japan, the Netherlands, and Taiwan to move on.
