Japan Rallies In The Bottom Of The 9th To Walk It Off Against Mexico In An Incredible Finish At The World Baseball Classic (Bonus: Unreal Japanese Broadcast Call)
HOLY SHIT THAT WAS ELECTRIC
I'm not sure how you can tune into that finish and not be all-in on the WBC. Down to their final three outs Japan sent up their three best hitters to try and make something happen. All the drama. Well, they made something happen.
What did Shohei Ohtani do leading off? So much pressure being the face of an entire country so he decided the hell with all that, let's just get the show on the road first pitch.
Lead off double to set the table, no sweat. Masataka Yoshida followed with a walk which allowed Japanese superstar and future 2027 Yankee Munetaka Murakami to smash the walk off double in the gap. Thanks for coming out Giovanny Gallegos.
Joe Davis is so good at announcing baseball, but the Japanese call was all-time. Please prepare yourself before hitting play below. If you have anyone asleep in the house right now maybe take this down to the basement or outside so you don't wake them up.
Mayhem. Pandemonium. Almost lunch time over in Japan and I bet everyone is just getting hammered drunk now. Nobody going back to work after that. What a moment, what a game. Mexico in full control early, Yoshida clubs a game tying 3 run homer to right. Mexico goes back in front. Japan doesn't blink. Special stuff folks.
Shout out KFC for mushing the World Baseball Classic into becoming an unbelievable spectacle.
USA vs. Japan tomorrow night at 7PM EST for all the marbles. Couldn't script it any better. Please pitch Ohtani.
