Olympics: Israel’s baseball team loses to South Korea, but not out yet

Israel’s Olympic baseball team lost to South Korea 1-11 on Monday morning and will face off against the Dominican Republic in the first repechage game on Tuesday afternoon.
If Israel wins the match against the Dominican Republic, the second repechage game and the semifinal game, it will head to the gold medal game against the winner of the other semifinal game. If Israel loses in the second repechage game or the semifinal game, it will have a chance for a bronze medal.
On Sunday, Team Israel trounced world no. 5 Mexico 12-5 in a “win-or-go-home” game on at Yokohama in both sides’ third contest of the Tokyo Olympics baseball tournament.
After losing its first two games, to South Korea and the USA, skeptics were quick to say that Israel’s dream-like fantasy of Olympic glory might not stand up to the light of day, especially with a depleted pitching staff.

But the club stood up to the intense light of the mid-day Japanese sun and the Israeli bats were absolutely red hot, producing a tournament-high dozen runs and 15 hits against a Mexican side traditionally known for its pitching.
