Japanese Baseball: WBC Exhibition - Japan beats the Giants..just
Glenn Davies, Tokyo Japan

Team Japan completed its exhibition series/warm-up games with a 2-0 victory over the Yomiuri Giants last night.
Team Japan's pitchers continued their dominance by retiring 19 batters in a row, keeping Yomiuri off the bases until Yasuhiko Yabuta issued a free pass in the eighth inning.
Japans offensive however, continued to struggle to drive in runs,they came up with 11 hits but stranded 12. No home runs again will be of major concern to manager Oh.

Japan face China to open their WBC play on Friday at the Tokyo Dome.
