The Mexican ninth scored his first runs in the Olympic tournament, but could not avoid his second setback, this time against Japan
The Mexican Softball Team lost its second game of the Olympic Games when falling before Japan 3-2 in eight innings, and with this complicates their aspirations to stay alive in the tournament, since they lost on the opening day to Canada and he has a game left against United States, one of the favorites to get gold in Tokyo. The Mexican team did not know how to take advantage of their opportunities, leaving eight runners on base, which in the end cost them, in large part, the defeat.
Japan went up in the second inning with home run from Yamato Fujita through the left garden, and it wasn’t until the fifth inning that Mexico tied, also with a home run, of Anissa urtez.
The advantage race would come at the close of that fifth when Haruka Agatsuma batting producer double. In the seventh inning Mexico tied thanks to an RBI single, once again Anissa Utrtez, in an inning where the Mexicans could go to the front, having runners in first and second without outs, but they did not make it and forced extrainnings.
Japan he would take the victory with a book play: a squeeze play. Taking advantage of having a runner on third and one out, Mana Atsumi touched the ball to propel Eri yamada who scored the winning run, leaving the Mexicans lying on the ground. Miu goto the victory was scored, while Danielle O’Toole bore defeat.
