Central League
After getting off to a nice second-half start by going 4-0 in the first four games after the All-Star break, the Tigers have dropped 5 of 8 and have fallen back into 4th place. This coming week could also end up breaking the Tigers as they face the Dragons and Giants. The Swallows are still in third place, but unless they're careful, they could be overtaken by the Hiroshima Carp -- in a span of a week, the Carp have gained 1.5 games on the Swallows.
