Tigers lose, Giants win, Giants still have a shot at 2nd

With the Hanshin Tigers getting shutout by the Yokohama Bay Stars and the Yomiuri Giants beating the Hiroshima Carp, the Tigers failed to clinch second in the Central League today.  The Tigers no longer have any games left to play while the Giants have one game left to play on Friday.  If the Giants win or tie that game, they'll take second place in the CL.  A Giants' loss will give the Tigers sole possession of second place.
