Yahoo.co.jp’s Iphone service gives excellent summaries of all NPB games, and is a great way to practice (and learn more) Japanese. Having not seen the games, I got my reports from this site.

The first game, on friday had the following report:

両チーム合わせて31安打を放つ打撃戦となった第1戦は10-8で全セが勝利した。全セは5点を追う8回表に巨人・ラミレス、横浜・内川の適時二塁打などで4点を挙げ、1点差に詰め寄り迎えた9回、ヤクルト・青木が日本ハム・武田久から2ランを放ち逆転に成功した。

This roughly translates to the following.

“In a high-scoring game that had 31 hits in total, the All-Central team emerged victorious 10-8. Chasing 5 runs at the top of the 8th, Kyojin’s Ramirez and Yokohama’s Uchikawa hit timely two abse hits to help lift the score by 4 pounts. With the game drawing to a close and the All-Central team 1 point behind, Yakult’s Aoki got a two run hit to secure a turnaround success for the Central League Team”.

The second game, on saturday, had the following:

全パ打線が計4本の本塁打を放ち全セに勝利。今球宴は両軍1勝ずつのタイに終わった。全パは1点ビハインドの5回表にロッテ・サブローのソロで同点とすると、6回にはソフトバンク・松中の2打席連続となる2ランで勝ち越した。松中はこの活躍で第2戦のMVPを獲得した。

“The All-Pacific line up hit four home runs to beat the All-Central line up, meaning this All-Star series finished with both teams on 1 victory. 1 behind in the 5th, Lotte’s Saburo’s solo homer drew the scores, before Softbank’s Matsunaka hit his second consecutive 2 run homer in the 6th to secure the victory. In was because of these hits that Matsunaka secured the 2nd game’s MVP award.”
