Ichiro scuffles in Classic tuneups

This just in from Tokyo: Ichiro Suzuki went 0-for-5 for Team Japan on Sunday during its 2-1 loss to the Yomiuri Giants in a World Baseball Classic tuneup game.

Ichiro was moved back into the leadoff spot after batting third during Team Japan’s other Clasic warmup games.

He also went hitless in Saturday’s 7-2 loss to Seibu.

Team Japan begins defense of its Classic championship on Thursday at Tokyo Dome against China.

Johjima got the only RBI for Team Japan in that game. A seeing eye grounder between 3rd and short.
