This time Team Europe shut the door on one of the world's best.

Yurendell De Caster of the Netherlands hit a three-run home run in the third inning and the Europeans successfully snuffed out Japan's attempts at another rally in a 6-2 victory in the finale of the two-game Global Baseball Match 2015 on Wednesday at Tokyo Dome.

"We came to win and today was a very, very great team effort," Team Europe manager Steve Janssen said. "I think we had very good pitching today, we threw the ball very good from the first to the last guy, we played some pretty good defense and we came up with some very good timely hitting today. It's a great feeling to leave tomorrow with a W in the back of our pocket."
