Otani's final strikeout of Chuot reminded many Japanese netizens of the 2009 classic game, when Japan's strong pitcher Darvish Yu also used a slider to strike out the last hitter of the South Korean team and helped the Japanese team win the championship.

According to "China Japan Sports" report, a Japanese netizen said that over 14 years, Otani replaced Darvish and pitched, and ended the game with a strikeout from the outside corner slider. "There is no such script anymore!"
