Next time they lost by 0-1, the third time they lost again by 1-4, and the fouth time they won by 6-2. Therefore Japan and South Korea were even of 2-2, and this game was the final match.
At the 9th inning they became the tie of 3-3, and at the 10th inning our hope, Ichiro (イチロー) hit the ball into center and they could score two runs, which brought Japan to the victory.
The pitcher Daisuke Matsuzaka(松坂大輔) was named the tournament's MVP again.
