[WBC 2017重點]毫無意外 以色列首勝到手


2017年最來勢洶洶的隊伍,絕對非以色列莫屬,WBC稱為世界棒球經典賽,能夠打上來的沒有一定的實力也不可能,以色列對於很多人來說或許是沙漠一塊,但全世界猶太人真的很多,大聯盟的世界裡面當然也有不少,因此以色列此次徵招到不少3A 2A小聯盟的好手,而且這些好手中也有幾個是大聯盟的常客,因此這次以色列的實力在國際上沒有人會去小看他們,與我們記憶中的歐洲強隊荷蘭,實力上應該可以說是不分軒輊。

此次韓國隊其實賽前也評估以色列其實比想像中的強,因此今天WBC的開幕戰,地主韓國面對既陌生又稍有實力的以色列,可以說是一場很難打的仗,尤其是第一場的開幕賽,投手也要在適應主審好球帶的前提下,整場動員八個投手,也投出了9個保送,整場比賽可以說是非常驚險,第二局以色列先靠著投手張員準的失投太多連續的保送加一個安打送出一分,又七八兩局的滿壘危機,更讓韓國嚇出一身冷汗。可見韓國這場比賽在投手這一環節上出了很大的狀況。第五局以色列投手也出了一點小狀況,前一局換上來的Zack Thornton先送出連續保送與觸身,送了韓國兩個壘包,接著換上來的Jeremy Bleich再投出一個三振之後被打出一支安打,使韓國追平比數。自此雙方纏鬥到第九局都未再得分。

第十局韓國林昌勇再造成一個出局數之後,面對以色列的強打Ike Davis投出一個保送,接著Ryan Lavarnway再打出一支安打 護送Davis 送到三壘,再讓目前還是1A的小聯盟二年級生Scott Burcham又打出一支安打把三壘這分打回來,成功在林昌勇手上拿下致勝的一分。終場以色列就以2:1在延長賽擊敗韓國,拿下以色列在世界棒球經典賽的首場勝利。

今天中華將在中午對決以色列,預料是一場硬仗 (圖:WBC大聯盟官網)

今天中午以色列將在不到24小時之內面對中華隊,我們知道中華隊此次經典賽徵招不是很順利,但陣中也有不少選手曾經待過小聯盟,像是蔣智賢、高國輝、林哲瑄等,預期今天先發的郭俊麟也是上過日本職棒一軍的好手,我相信在對決經驗上應該不會是太大的問題。加上以中華職棒為主的中華隊其實平常也有很多洋將待過2A 3A甚至是大聯盟的,在打擊實力與對決心態上來說應該與以色列不會有太大的落差才是。但台灣選手在守備與跑壘積極度常常出現不夠專心與細膩度不夠的狀況。加上前場看韓國投手投得非常辛苦,因此好球帶的適應上來說,投手群需要更快的調整與適應,並做好面對好球帶不穩定的心態調整,我想今天面對以色列還是有不小的勝算。就讓我們今天中午11點一起為中華隊加油吧。
