TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Seung Song allowed two hits in four innings and South Korea beat Australia 6-0 Monday night in Group B of the World Baseball Classic.

The win lifted the South Koreans to 1-1 in the group and set up a crucial game against host Taiwan on Tuesday. Australia fell to 0-2.

Kim Hyun-soo drove in two runs for South Korea, which rebounded from an uncharacteristically sloppy display against the Netherlands in a 5-0 loss.

With a 2-0 record, the Taiwanese remain in a commanding position to advance to the next round in Tokyo. The Netherlands is also 1-1 after stunning South Korea, but must beat Australia on Tuesday.
