Choo powers South Koreans

Shin-Soo Choo is one game away from leaving his 30-month military service, as South Korea defeated China 7-1 today in the semi-final game.  Today, the 28-year-old right fielder went 1-for-1, with a solo home run in the seventh inning.  Choo walked three times, scored three runs, and managed to steal a base as well.  Overall, Choo is 6 for 10, with three home runs, two doubles, two stolen bases and five walks.

South Korea gets a rematch with Chinese Taipei (Taiwan) in tomorrow's gold medal game.  Don't expect Choo to get many pitches to hit, as he went 2 for 4, with two homers and four RBI in 6-1 South Korean victory to open the games.

Should South Korea win the game, Choo would be exempt from serving a mandatory 30-month military obligation.
