The Second Georgia Award for 2011 went to Sho Nakata for his tie-breaking 3-run triple on 5/3 vs the Orix Buffaloes.

With the bases loaded, 2 out, and the game knotted at 3 in the top of the 10th, Nakata hit a 3-run triple off Mamuro Kishida to give the Fighters a 6-3 lead.  Hisashi Takeda retired the side in order in the bottom of the 10th and the Fighters won the game, 6-3.  Georgia video - Box score
