Chen Yung-chi of Chinese Taipei had a grand slam and drove in five runs in the victory.

Hu Chin-lung delivered a one-out double and Hseih Chia-hsien followed with a single to put runners on the corners.

Xu Zheng replaced Wang and issued a walk to load the bases and, after Yang Chung-shou struck out, Chen drove a 3-1 pitch well over the left field fence for a 5-0 lead.

Chen added an RBI double in the sixth as Chinese Taipei continued to break open the game.

Wang Wei had two RBI for China (0-3), which was outscored, 40-5, in the tournament.
