Revenge was not to be for Team USA softball.
Thirteen years after being stunned by Japan in the 2008 gold medal game, Team USA fell short to Japan in the gold medal game in Tokyo, 2-0.
The loss ended an unbeaten Tokyo Olympic run for the Americans, who had beaten Japan 2-1 just a couple of days earlier. However, that game was the final game of round-robin play.
Those heroics could not be duplicated on Tuesday evening in Tokyo, as Japan takes their second gold and Team USA softball receives their second straight Olympic silver. Canada wins the bronze after defeating Mexico earlier.
