東京での開幕戦、レッドソックスがアスレチックスを制す


Red Sox Beat Athletics in Tokyo Opener
( New York Times )

Daisuke Matsuzaka's homecoming was saved by Manny Ramirez. Ramirez hit his second two-run double in the 10th inning, and the Boston Red Sox began their World Series title defense by beating the Oakland Athletics 6-5 in Tuesday night's major league season opener.

In the earliest major league opener, and the third in Japan, Jonathan Papelbon struggled before getting the save. He walked Daric Barton leading off the bottom of the10th and gave up a one-out RBI double to Emil Brown, who was tagged out in a rundown between second and third.

白鵬、千秋楽を劇的に制す


Hakuho wins dramatic final
( Japan Times )

Mongolian yokozuna Hakuho passed arguably his toughest test with flying colors Sunday, beating rival yokozuna Asashoryu in a final showdown to win his third straight title with victory at the New Year Grand Sumo Tournament.

For compatriot Asashoryu, who was on a comeback from a two-tournament ban in the hunt for his 22nd Emperor's Cup, an amazing 15-day effort just was not enough this time around against the junior yokozuna.

亀田大毅 反則で1年間の出場停止、父もライセンス停止


Kameda receives one-year ban for foul play against Naito;
father's license suspended
( Japan Times )

The Japan Boxing Commission slapped Daiki Kameda with a one-year suspension Monday as punishment for breaching regulations during his defeat to champion Daisuke Naito in a WBC flyweight title match last week.

Naito was in control throughout the match last Thursday at Tokyo's Ariake Colosseum and successfully defended his title on a unanimous decision after Kameda resorted to underhand tactics and had three points deducted for violations that included lifting the champion and throwing him down in the 12th round.
