Shinnosuke Abe bookended an eight-run Japanese outburst in the second inning, and the two-time reigning Classic champs held off a late Dutch rally to seal the Pool 1 title. Hisayoshi Chono drove in five from the leadoff spot for Japan, while Netherlands' leadoff hitter, Andrelton Simmons, homered for the second straight game.
