I'm going to make this short because the results depress me.
In Miyagi, Sanuma gives their best effort at Rakuten Kobo Stadium against Rifu, and actually rally to tie the game at 2 in the 5th. But Rifu edges ahead with a run in the 6th, and Sanuma can't find the equalizer. They fall just short 3-2.
Yamanashi was more heartbreaking for me. Trailing 3-1 in the 7th, Nihon Koukuu scores 7 runs to lead 8-3. But they can't hold it. 2 in the 8th makes it a 8-5 game. Then an error by their 2B extended the game, and allowed Toukaidai Koufu to not only tie the game, but take the 9-8 lead. Nihon Koukuu winds up the bridesmaids yet again, falling this time to Toukaidai Koufu 9-8...
I get to go to bed depressed.
