GameTime Classics Episode 26: Re-live Australia v Argentina and a fantastic pitching duel at the Men’s Softball World Championship 2013
A low-scoring thriller, featuring a fantastic pitching duel between Australia’s ace Adam Folkard and Argentian duo Lucas Mata and Maximiliano Montero closed Day 9 of the tournament.

Episode 26 of the GameTime Classics series will feature one of the best matches of the WBSC Men’s Softball World Championship 2013: the playoff game between Australia and Argentina. The game was played at Rosedale Park in Auckland, New Zealand, on March 9.

Australian right-hander Adam Folkard and Argentina's duo of Lucas Mata and Maximiliano Montero engaged in a titanic pitching duel in the elimination game. The winner would advance to the semifinal and secure a medal in the tournament, while the loser would finish in fourth place.

Earlier that day both teams avoided elimination with key wins. Lefty Andrew Kirkpatrick no-hit Japan and led Australia to a 4-0 win, while Argentina advanced with a 2-1 victory over Canada, with a 2-run homer by German Sacks in the sixth inning.
