Japan Beats All-Stars

YOKOHAMA, Japan () -- Japan's star slugger Hideki Matsui had a grand slam off Shane Reynolds of Houston as the Japanese all-stars beat the U.S. major-league all-stars 6-4 Saturday.

The U.S. team leads the eight-game Super Major series 4-2-1.

Also, four more Cuban national baseball team members have defected in Mexico, a week after Cuba clamped down on those it said were helping its athletes defect.
