Comments by Players
Keitaro Taguri pitcher (as a starting member)
"We could give up strike than we thought without being tense and were enough today as there were many strikeouts and was produced. Next does its best to be able to control at point zero in walked carefully. "
Manager Toshihisa Nishi
Look back toward group league
"Movement of players was feeling more than expectation. There were not many plays below expectation. There was not game to collapse as pitcher could take out well properly. Player who can make game well plays from the first inning and thinks that they threw just as wanted.
The Philippines was downgrading by attack and this was the top, but was puzzled than Korea thought as ball was fast in today's Pakistan, and breaking ball was sharp. Drag bunt of Konishi after it was opened the scoring (in meeting theme of every evening "that we think, and the player plays") was good idea."
It is the semifinals, Final Game from tomorrow
"We want to do the semifinals in the same way as preliminary so that there is not defeat, but we have the forerunner try hard as we want to leave pitcher what kind of state it can face Final Game in as it is important and want to prevent you from using the number of people if possible.
There is thought that we want to win from defeat at this meeting before 11th grade all the time if Final Game becomes Chinese Taipei. We want to win for future meeting as we think that we become rival for the time being in U-12."
