On September 11, 2016 — 2016 – The Japanese women’s national team wins its fifth straight Women’s Baseball World Cup title. They beat Canada, 10-0. Ayami Sato, the 2014 MVP, is also MVP of the 2016 Women’s Baseball World Cup with a two-hit, one-walk complete game in the finale, while Chihiro Funakoshi drives in three and Iori Miura raps 3 hits. For Canada, the loss still means their second Silver Medal ever in the event, their only losses coming against Japan. The Bronze Medal game is a much closer affair between two teams that had never finished that high before. Venezuela trails Taiwan, 3-0, entering the bottom of the 7th and last inning, as Yu-Chen Hsu looks for a shutout. Venezuela rallies for four runs; with two outs and the bases loaded, down 3-2, Osmari Garcia singles in the last two runs. Maria Rincon gets the historic win.
