Code:
Team                          W   L
=====================================
SK Wyverns (KBO)              2   0
Saitama Seibu Lions (NPB)     1   1
Touitsu 7-Eleven Lions (CPBL) 1   1
Tenshin Lions (CBA)           0   2

The Seibu Lions will need to win their game against the Tenshin Lions today (12:00 start) if they want a chance to battle it out for the Asia Series Cup.

While unlikely, there is an off-chance that three teams finish at 2-1. In that event, here are the tie-breaker rules:

  1. Head-to-Head results
  2. The team with the fewer amount of earned runs
  3. The team that scored more runs
  4. Coin toss

My Prediction:
Wyverns beat Touitsu Lions
Seibu Lions beat Tenshin Lions

Wyverns and Seibu Lions will face off against each for the Asia Series Trophy.

Incidentally, a man going by the name Takayuki Kishi started the game for the Seibu Lions against the Toitsu Lions. His line score is as follows:

8 IP, 120 PT, 28 PA, 25 AB, 2 H, 10 K, 2 BB, 1 ER

The kid is on a roll.
