The Scoring:

Top of the first. Tokyo managed to load the bases (Kawabata, Yamada, Balentien), only to strand everyone.

Bottom of the first. If nothing else, Ogawa kept his pitch count low. Takayama singled off the first pitch of his AB. Yamato popped out the second. Toritani’s at-bat lasted two pitches; he singled, putting men on the corners. Ogawa then walked Gomez on four pitches. Itayama hit the second pitch he saw for a two-run single. 2-0 Hanshin, Final.

Boring.
