Takasaki played the way they played in the preliminary tournament where they stole 37 bases in six games. The Takasaki’s runners put the pressure on Iwakuni’s starting pitcher, Yanagawa (RHP #1). All of the Takasaki’s four runners who stole bases ended up scoring runs. The lineup set on Yanagawa’s slider and successfully hit off  the nation wide known pitcher to score five runs. Takasaki’s Takahashi (LHP #1) took over from Kawai, who started the game, and pitched seven innings without allowing any runs.

An exciting first round game.
