Wow what a great final!
Japan put on the pressure leading 2 – 0 against Argentina, however Argentina never gave up and clawed their way back into the game ending 2 – 2 after 7 innings.
This meant that they had to play tie break, starting with runner on 2nd base.
After the 2nd tie break innings, Argentina played very strategically by walking the 1st batter to set up a double play situation which they executed perfectly, hit to 2nd base by Japan, double play by Argentina.
A bad bounce of the ball and the player not getting his body behind the ball after a hit to left outfield, allowed the Argentina base runner to score ending the game with a win of 3 – 2 to Argentina.
Great game, great strategy by Argentina, heart break for Japan!
