Finals Game @ 18:06

Team 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 R H E
Honda 0 0 3 0 0 0 0 0 1 4 8 0
Toyota 0 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 2 4 0

Honda won it's first Intercity Championship in 13 years (2nd overall).

Hisayoshi Chono had another solid night, going 1-for-3 with a walk, and 2 RBI. Chono ended up getting the Leading Hitter Award with his .579 (11-for-19) batting average.  The Hashido Award (Best Pitcher Award) went to 27-year-old Honda pitcher Rikiya Chikugawa. The Wakajishi Award (Rookie Award) went to 23-year-old righty Kota Suda (Honda).

Incidentally, Chikugawa was also nursing a bad left thigh, something he hurt during the tournament.

For those interested, here is a breakdown of their performances:

I went to the second game and took some pictures I'll try to post a little later.  After going, I wish I had taken my voice recorder with me because the sounds of the oendan were a bit mesmerizing, if not a bit deafening.

Chono also had himself a nice night (3-for-4, 2B), much to the chagrin of one certain Deanna.  But I think she was feeling much better after a photo-op with Honda reliever Rikiya Chikugawa (筑川 利希也) after the game.

I almost forgot to add...

This is Nissan's last season.  Which means this is also Nissan's last Intercity Tournament.  But they did a pretty good job getting into the Semifinals -- certainly nothing to be ashamed of.

...Japan's Crown Prince was in attendance for the Yamaha vs. Honda Suzuka game. The last time any Crown Prince was in attendance for one of these games was back in 1959 during the 30th Intercity Baseball Tournament when the current Emperor was a Crown Prince.
