The scoring:

Top of the third, one out. Nakamura singled, then things got fun. Ishiyama bunted, Ibata fumbled. Two men on. After a Yamada grounder got Ishiyama nabbed on the way to second, Ueda cracked an RBI. 1-0 Tokyo.

Top of the seventh. Yuhei walked, Morioka sac-bunted him to second, and Araki doubled him home. 2-0 Tokyo, Final.

We’ll take it.
