Asian Beauty:Moe.N | Marines edge Chinese all-stars in Konami Cup

Benny Agbayani doubled in a pair of runs in the bottom of the fifth inning Saturday, leading the Chiba Lotte Marines to a 3-1 win over a Chinese select team in the Konami Cup baseball tournament.
Agbayani's double helped Bobby Valentine's Marines erase a 1-0 deficit and improve to a perfect 3-0 in the four-nation tourney.
"It was a well-played game," said Valentine. "I was very impressed with China and our team played very well."
The Chinese all-stars, who dropped to 0-3, are managed by former major league manager Jim Lefebvre. Lefebvre and Valentine both played for the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 1960s.
The inaugural Konami Cup features the top professional teams from Japan, South Korea, Taiwan as well as a team of all-stars from China's pro league.
Valentine went with a lineup that included mostly younger players who didn't play in the Japan Series.
"I wanted to give some of our younger players a chance to get some experience in a big game," said Valentine. The Marines will face either Taiwan or South Korea in Sunday's final.
