Agbayani, playing right field, went three for four with two RBI's including his first home run of the series for the Bobby Valentine managed Marines, just before the game was called. Matt Franco went 1 for 4 for Chiba Lotte.
One thing I learned in trying to follow this series: don't try to read the game log straight from the Marines website. Something is definitely lost in the translation. Here, for example, is the log from the bottom of the first inning:
(The Tigers pitcher * Ikawa)Racketeer? Promontory? Death?
1st Nishioka swing wide three swing. 1 death
2nd now to the river left stand solo home run of the series 1st number! 1 death. 1-0 To 3rd luck inlet left line 2 based hits! 1 death 2 base
4th sub low third racketeer. 2 deaths 2 base
5th village promontory swing wide three swing. Change
Wow, I didn't know the game was so violent in Japan.
By the way...since the game was called right after Benny's dinger due to fog, does that count as a walk off home run?
It wouldn't be the first...
