The tsunami-hit city of Sendai erupted in joy as its local club won Japan’s professional baseball title for the first time ever Sunday, more than two years after the disaster.

The nine-year-old Rakuten Eagles, the youngest of Japan’s 12 pro baseball clubs, beat the Tokyo-based Yomiuri Giants, the richest and oldest franchise, 3-0 at home in the final game of the best-of-seven Japan Series.
