2018-08-19

DAVID, Panama – Two Asian baseball super powers — Japan and Chinese Taipei — will collide in the bronze medal game of the U-15 Baseball World Cup 2018, which is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. local time at Estadio Kenny Serracín, ahead of the 6:00 p.m. all-Americas World Championship Final between Panama and the United States.

World No. 2 Japan will be the home team against world No. 6 Chinese Taipei.

With 2-3 records in the Super Round, Japan and Chinese Taipei were locked in a three-way tie with Cuba, but tie-breaking rules gave the Asian nations the edge, knocking Cuba out of medal contention and into 5th Place.

In their head-to-head contest in the Super Round, Japan beat Chinese Taipei, 5-2.

At the last U-15 Baseball World Cup in 2016, Japan finished second in the world, earning the silver medal, while Chinese Taipei finished in seventh place and did not make it out of the Opening Round group stage.
