7/31/08 – 2008 All-Star Game (Kyocera Dome)

Central League 4

Pacific League 5

(Kyocera Dome)

Aoki went 2 for 3 and struck out once, while Miyamoto didn’t come up to bat in the Central League’s All-Star Game loss tonight. Kanemoto (solo HR off Darvish plus one more RBI), Uchikawa, and Abe all had RBIs.
On the Pacific League side, Morimoto, Yamazaki, Kokubo, and Matsunaka all had RBIs. No homers for them.

The CL pitching staff threw 6 Ks, no walks, while the PL struck out 5 and walked 1.

Katoh got the win for the PL, while Kubota took the loss for the CL.

It was a fairly exciting one, as far as All-Star Games go, with the PL rallying from a one-run deficit in the bottom of the 9th to win the game.

The second All-Star Game will be at Yokohama Stadium tomorrow evening.
