Jae Yeong Hwang powered Asia-Pacific at the plate and on the hill Sunday, willing Asia-Pacific to a 8-5 victory over Caribbean.
Hwang racked up two RBIs on two hits for Asia-Pacific. He homered in the third inning and singled in the fifth inning.
Caribbean couldn't get anything going so long as Hwang was on the hill. Caribbean managed just two hits off of Hwang, who allowed no earned runs, walked none and struck out five during his 2 1/3 innings of work.
Ji Ho Park helped Asia-Pacific pull ahead for the duration in the sixth inning. With the score tied at five, Park came to the plate and Jun Hyeok Yun stole home, bringing home Yun.
Edward González got on base three times in the game for Caribbean. He singled in the fourth and fifth innings.
Emanuel Alicea was the game's losing pitcher. He lasted just 1 2/3 innings, walked none, struck out two, and allowed four runs.
In the bottom of the first, Caribbean grabbed the early lead, 2-0. A single by Adrian Colón started the inning off. Caribbean then tacked on more runs when scored.
