Wow. I tuned out after the first game today. This sounds like a bloodbath.

EDIT: The mercy rule would apply if Tajimi doesn't score by the 7th inning, correct? I'm not 100% on all the rules.

EDIT 2: Guess not.

Holy shit. Is Houtoku that good or was this a bit unexpected?

it's a freakish result, but indicates more that the region Taijimi came from is really weak. Houtoku is not a top tier school but as eigokokoyakyu notes they do have players that made the Japan U-15 team.

they get the winner of last night's third game, so it will be interesting to see if they come down to earth.

Tonight's first game will have Fukuokadai Oohori, eigokokoyakyu's pick to make best 4 out of the block. The last game has Sapporo Dai-itchi, continuing a string of multiple years with me not able to watch the Hokkaido team because they get the late game.

it looks like the weather's good today, so games should resume at the top of the hour (8pm ET (9am Japan time))

Group B finishes in games 1 & 2:

Soushi Gakuen (Okayama) v Fukuokadai Oohori (Fukuoka)
Toukaidai Ichihara Bouyou (Chiba) v Shiga Gakuen (Shiga)

and we get the start of group C in the third game:

Kendai Takasaki (Gunma) v Sapporo Dai-ichi (Hokkaido)

Fukuokadai Oohori is eigokokoyakyu's pick to win group B. Kendai Takasaki is favored over Sapporo Dai-ichi but (in my sleep) I'll be rooting for Sapporo Dai-ichi to score the upset.

first game team grades from the app; fairly comparable except edge in pitching to Fukuokadai Oohori; defense to Soushi Gakuen.

Miura can touch 140 and has a good slow curve, but he's in a jam with two outs.

Yeah, they've been working for me on both firefox and chrome, but the quality is worse than the live broadcasts are (for me).

man i really liked how Miura was down 3-0, came back with a two seamer at 139 to get a strike, then an off speed pitch for a pop up.

a lot of good movement on his pitches.

Between his defense, bad luck, and getting plunked in the pitching elbow, Miura had to work for that. Good game, you can see why they are favored in B block but their weaknesses were obvious.

First game was fun to watch Miura pitch but not necessarily tense.

Second game is a big pitching duel & worth watching.

Third game was a blowout.

Today's games finish out the first round in C block, the first game in particular should be exciting

Fukui Koudai Fukui (Fukui) v Sendai Ikuei (Miyagi)
Takada Shougyou (Nara) v Shuugakukan (Kumamoto)
Sakushin Gakuin (Tochigi) v Teikyou Dai-go (Ehime)

Sendai Ikuei is a perennially strong competitor, we'll have to see how good they are this year. I want to see Fukui's fall schedule to see who they beat.

Tomorrow is the marquee (Kiyomiya) day but let's not get ahead of ourselves. :D

Edit: one of the songs from those Snow app ads is stuck in my head now. please help
