South Korea finished runner-up to Japan at the Premier12 baseball tournament on Sunday, losing 5-to-3, and failing in its bid for back-to-back titles.
Despite taking a 3-to-nothing lead in the first inning, Japan rallied back to take the lead in the second inning, and never looked back.
Despite losing in final, South Korea still qualified for next year's Olympics in Tokyo.
The team was also awarded a 750-thousand U.S. dollar bonus for finishing second.
