When Glenn WILLIAMS drove in the first Australian run in the first with a single, nobody had though what would happen afterwards. The South Korean offense took over in the bottom of the same period and pounded the opposing pitching with 16 runs over the next four frames. They won by a score of 16-2 in seven innings and cemented their status as heavy favorite with this lopsided victory.
Seung Yuop LEE (3-3) hit a three-run-homerun, scored three times and got four RBI. Dae Ho LEE had two hits and three RBI. Joo Chan LEE delivered a bases-clearing double. Yong Kyu LEE had three hits and drove in three.

Aussie starter Greg WILTSHIRE (L 0-1) was charged with three hits, four runs and two walks in just one period. However Chris MODWAY and Mark KELLY also could not stop the pouring.
