Meanwhile, Sotoku’s Ishioka remained upbeat saying, “It’s really hard, but I’m having fun.” The entire team has been putting on a brave face in light of the tragic landslides that hit their prefecture earlier this month. They needed all the energy they could muster to bring some good news back home.
As the 46th inning began, the stands were packed to watch the results. The score remained locked until the top of the 50th when Chukyo found themselves with bases loaded and no outs from an infield single and two walks. At that time, Goto hit a double and finally batted in the first two runs of this four-day game. Later on another point was scored off an infield grounder.
