In an exciting World Baseball Classic semifinal game, Japan managed to qualify for the final after beating Mexico 6-5.

At the bottom of the ninth inning, Japan trailed 4-5.

Shohei Ohtani ignited the rally in the ninth inning with a double, and Munetaka Murakami hit a powerful drive off the fence that drove in two runs for the rubber and put Mexico on the field.

The ninth Japanese team will face the powerful United States team this Tuesday in the final, which beat Cuba 14-2 on Sunday in the first semifinal.
