Japan’s ‘200 million dollar ultra-luxurious lineup’ beats the United States and wins for the third time in its career

In the first match between the United States and Japan, the United States was the first team to take the lead.

Japan responded with a home run straight away in the bottom of the second inning.

Murakami tied the game with a huge solo home run, and the next hitter, Okamoto, went to base with a right-handed hit and scored a come-from-behind run, then added a solo home run to left midfield in the 4th inning to create a 3-1, two-point lead.안전놀이터

Japan started the bullpen starting in the 3rd inning to completely block the hard hitting line of the USA. In the 8th inning, San Diego’s ace Darvish came to the mound in relief, but Schwaber of the USA hit a huge solo home run and was chased by one point.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, which kept its advantage on thin ice, Japan let Ohtani, the best star who started as the designated hitter, as the finishing pitcher.

Ohtani walked the first batter, McNeil, but induced Betts to double-stroke, and in two outs, he had a ‘dream match’ with Trout, the best hitter in active life and a teammate of the Los Angeles Angels.

Ohtani, who was competing head-to-head with a fastball exceeding 160 km/h, struck out on a swing with a sharp slider on a full count.

With a 3-2 victory, Japan won the title for the third time following 2006 and 2009.

Ohtani, who had a batting average of 4.3 and 5.0 as a hitter and had a remarkable performance of 2 wins and 1 save in 3 games as a pitcher, was selected as the MVP of the tournament.

This is SBS Ahn Seohyun.
