The Fifth Georgia Award for 2012 went to Toshiya Sugiuchi for tossing a no-hitter against the Rakuten Eagles on May 30.

Sugiuchi was one batter away from a perfect game when he walked Toshiya Nakashima with two out in the top of the 9th.  He secured the no-hitter when he got the next batter, Ryo Hijirisawa, to strikeout looking for the final out of the game.  Georgia video - Box score
