Both teams played well in a tight game, but Japan won thanks to the amazing bat of Ichiro. He went 4 for 5 with the winning runs scored off his bat. He had an amazing at bat in the top of the 10th, at which point Korea should have simply walked him. But they didn't, and a hit up the middle made the difference.
There were over 54,000 present at the game, mostly Korean, and the crowd was wild until the end. It was a lot of fun to be there.
