Card Of The Week August 21

The Cal Ripken World Series wrapped up today with Team Japan defeating the Ohio Valley team 7-0 for their first ever championship.  Japan dominated the tournament, going 8-0 while outscoring their opponents a whopping 97 to 9, including a 31-1 defeat of Canada and a 21-0 defeat of Australia.  They had one tight game against Mexico, winning a squeaker 2-1.  One of their pitchers, Kazuki Sakurai, struck out 28 in 11 2/3 innings, including eight of the nine batters he faced in championship game.

Unlike the last couple of years, I didn't attend any of the games this year.  Mostly it was because I didn't have time, but it was also partially because the object of my stalking the last two years has a new job this year:
