Extra innings. Extra excitement. An undefeated season on the line. Sox of both colors. Thursday’s Babe Ruth Championship game at Kofu Park could not have asked for much more.
The Red Sox came into the game with a 13-0 record and nearly finished their year spotless after rallying from an early five-run deficit. But the White Sox had the final say, striking for five eight-inning runs to pull off a stirring 13-8 victory.
