Koreans surprise Team USA (Chicago Sun-Times, March 14, 2006)

Former Cubs first baseman Hee-Seop Choi's three-run home run against Dan Wheeler in the fourth inning was the key blow Monday as South Korea beat the United States 7-3 in the second round of the World Baseball Classic in Anaheim, Calif. The game was played before an announced crowd of 21,288 at Angel Stadium.

South Korea (2-0) will play its final game of the second round Wednesday against Japan. Japan (0-1) will face Mexico (0-1) today, and Team USA (1-1) will play Mexico on Thursday. The top two teams will meet Saturday in the semifinals at Petco Park in San Diego.
