Yamanashi wins Japan-Metro Classic

Both ballclubs and more than 600 fans enjoyed the Japan-Metro All-Star Classic at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Thursday night, but the visitors from Yamanashi enjoyed the game a little bit more than the hosts.

The Japanese team rallied from a 2-0 deficit and topped the Metro All-Stars, 6-2, with an impressive display of pitching, defense and timely hitting.

The Japanese pitchers struck out 14 batters and allowed only four hits in the nine-inning game. One of their outfielders made a beautiful diving catch and they committed only one error all night.

"They're talented," said Lucas Larson, an infielder from Jefferson. "They're very disciplined. They don't do many things wrong. You can tell they're well-coached."
