Ryusei Gonda of Japan has been awarded the title of MVP of the U-23 Baseball World Cup after helping his country beat South Korea in the final at the Taipei Tianmu Baseball Stadium.

Gonda featured in seven games, including the final and earned five saves.

In his seven innings, he struck out five and allowed only one run on two hits.

"Today we played the final. We all know what we are supposed to do in a game like this," Gonda said after the final.

"Throughout the tournament, I look at it as if we went successfully through different challenges as it went by.

"But my teammates and I all believe that the most important thing is to do our job, and we go from there."
