Japan Ties U.S.

TOKYO, Japan () -- After power-hitting by Chuck Knoblauch and Mike Piazza, the visiting American all-stars couldn't hold a 7-4 lead Sunday as Atsuya Furuta's ninth-inning single gave Japan an 8-8 tie.


The tie in the final game of a goodwill series left the Americans with four victories, two losses and two ties. Japanese baseball rules permit ties even in regular season play.
