After 38 games, fourteen teams have been eliminated, and we've come almost all the way back to where we started. In the Pool A seeding game in Round 1 of this tournament, Korea and lefty Jung Keun Bong took on Japan and right-hander Hisashi Iwakuma and came away with a tense 1-0 victory. Those two pitchers will face off again tonight in the fifth meeting between these two teams in this series. Korea and Japan have split their first four meetings, but this one will determine the tournament champion. Will it be the defending champs from Japan, or their arch rivals from Korea? We'll have our answer in just a few hours.

Check out my full preview of tonight's game on SI.com's main baseball page. I'll be back in a bit with the lineups.
