Titre original : An Oath
Goro's efforts send the game into the 10th inning, and a surprise awaits everyone when Goro manages to hit a homerun and put the Bats up 4 to 3. The bottom of the 10th quickly begins with the Bats getting two outs, but the Falcons aren't dead quite yet as they follow up with two consecutive hits leading to a showdown between Goro and Junior to decide the game. Goro calls for the walk, but every fielder on the Bats comes and talks him out of it. Goro winds up despite the runners being on base and allows them to steal second and third. Now any hit will win the game for the Falcons, but Goro's pitches continue to speed up. In the end Goro pitches a 102 mph fastball to Junior which shatters Juniors bats, and the Bats win the championship. After the game Junior asks for directions to Honda's grave. Goro tells him to forget it, instead saying he'll tell him himself. The two commit to face each other as often as possible in the Majors, and Gibson congratulates the two for their great showdown but informs them they won't get past him and the other Major Leaguers so easily.
