Assuming there are no changes to the starting rotation for either the Nippon Ham Fighters or the Rakuten Eagles, Yuki Saito (HAM) will be facing Masahiro Tanaka (RAK) on 9/10.

Senichi Hoshino told Sanspo yesterday that he was excited about the possibility and said that he would do nothing to change the current rotation and that the rest was up to the Fighters.

Tanaka also spoke to reporters and said that he was looking forward to facing his old rival and that he figured the fans would enjoy the match-up as well.

And Daily Sports reports that tickets for seats behind home plate and field levels seats have already sold out.
