In order for the Softbank Hawks to win the PL…

The easiest way for the Softbank Hawks to win the Pacific League is to win their next two games.  Short of that:

If the Hawks go 1-1, the Lions will need to lose at least one of their remaining three games, or go 0-0-3.

If the Hawks go 1-0-1, the Lions can win no more than two of their three remaining games.

If the Hawks go 0-1-1, the Lions can win no more than one of their three remaining games.  And if the Lions do win a game, they'll also need to lose at least one of their other two games.

If the Hawks go 0-2, the Lions will need to lose at least two of their remaining three games, or go 0-1-2.

I think that covers all the scenarios.  If you want to figure things out for the Seibu Lions, you can probably figure it out by reversing the numbers above.
