I couldn't catch the streaming video of the game, but I figured I would at least post the results of the game here.

The final score:

Code:
                   1  2  3   4  5  6   7  8  9   R
World Japan 2009   0  0  2   0  0  0   1  0  0   3
The Premium Malts  0  0  0   0  3  5   0  1  x   9

It also appears as though Masumi Kuwata tossed 2.1 innings of shut-out ball and struck out 4. And if I'm reading the article right, he also hit a solo home run in the top of the 7th. Kuwata won the Fighting Spirit Award.

The 1985 Tigers' power trio was also intact: #3, Randy Bass; #4, Masayuki Kakefu; #5, Akinobu Okada.

And I'm not really sure what Bass did, but he apparently won the MVP award.

I'll try to post whatever else I manage to find over the next day or so.

UPDATE: July 7 @ 10:18am JST - 2 more images taken from Sanspo: here and here.

UPDATE: July 7 @ 10:48am JST - Bass apparently went 1-for-4 with 2 RBIs.
