Card Of The Week March 4

Southern Thunder, the Australian National Baseball Team, took on Samurai Japan, the Japanese National Baseball Team, in two games this week.  Japan won 2-0 yesterday in Nagoya and won again 6-0 today in Osaka.  I haven't been able to find any box scores on line but I think Shogo Akiyama was one of the stand outs in both games.  He singled in the sixth inning yesterday and scored the first run on Yuki Yanagita's double.  Not completely sure how well he did today but he had two RBIs, hit a triple and scored at least one run.  He was on the podium with Takehiro Norimoto as the "Heroes Of The Game" after today's game (Yanagita was the Hero yesterday).  Here's a card of Akiyama from last fall's Calbee Samurai Japan set:
