He took a bad angle on the ball and wasn't going to get to it, he didn't give up on it. Dunn is stretched as a LF or a 1B, he is completely lost in RF.
The fact that Darvish is pitching the 9th really makes the point. The USA leaves Oswalt in to get his work in while he is getting pounded and Japan uses its finale game SP in the 9th with a 5 run lead just to be 100% sure they win.
