The Marines and Eagles played two crazy games the last two days in Chiba. Yesterday, the Marines beat the Eagles 13-12 in 10 innings, winning on a walk off single by Tadahito Iguchi. Today was another extra inning victory for Lotte, coming back from being down 5-1 after 5 innings to win 9-8 on a game winning single by Alfredo Despaigne in the 11th. One of the stars for the Marines over the two games was left fielder Katsuya Kakunaka, who went 5 for 7 with four walks over the two games, scoring six runs and knocking in four. Oh, yeah and he homered in each game as well.
