The World Baseball Classic ends for Mexico

Japan will meet defending champions the United States in a championship game on Tuesday that pits Ohtani against Mike Trout, his teammate from the Los Angeles Angels and center fielder for the US team.

Ohtani went 2-for-4. He scored in the seventh inning when Masataka Yoshida tied the game with a three-run home run off reliever JoJo Romero.
