Giants even up Japan Series on Ramirez sayonara home run

Alex Ramirez of the Yomiuri Giants hit a game-ending home run off of Seibu's Daisuke Ochi to even the Japan Series at one win apiece, as the Giants won 3-2 at the Tokyo Dome.

Seibu lead 2-1 after four on a 2-run homer by Hiroyuki Nakajima, his second of the series. The Giants tied the game in the sixth on an RBI double by Yoshiyuki Kamei.

The series now shifts to the Seibu Dome in Tokorazawa for Games 3 through 5.

I was able to find a Korean broadcast of the game online through the same website that people used to watch some of the MLB playoffs online. Nothing like watching Japanese baseball broadcast in Korean with a flickering picture while lying awake wondering why you ordered such a big coffee so late at night.

Korean announcers are much more restrained than Japanese announcers.

That's the guy, but he looks a lot bigger than 5'11. He's certainly way over 200 lbs now.

was just home in time to catch the end of that game, huge home run by Ramirez. the whole Giants-obsession in Japan is much less than it used to be, but still kind of I am pulling for Seibu. My team, the Yakult Swallows, hasn't been close to the Japan Series for awhile now unfortunately...

Japanese announcers are way,wayyyy over the top...think John Sterling's home run call but on EVERY play...
