TAIPEI, Taiwan (AP) -- Jungho Kang hit a two-run homer with two out in the bottom of the 8th inning to give South Korea a 3-2 victory over Taiwan in a World Baseball classic Group B game on Tuesday, but the South Koreans missed out on a spot in the next round because they lost a tiebreaker against the Netherlands.

Taiwan, Korea and the Netherlands all finished the group with 2-1 records. But Taiwan and the Netherlands advanced on a run differential tiebreaker. Australia finished at the bottom of the group with an 0-3 record.

Kang's home run came off former Los Angeles Dodgers reliever Hung-Chin Kuo, who gave up all three runs in the 8th. Dai-Kang Yang had two singles for Taiwan and drove in a run.
