Yakult Swallows

Junji Ogawa on Tony Barnette's outing: "I used [Barnette] in an unfair situation.  The result cannot be helped. ... Scoring just three runs in three games is tough.  More runs are needed in order to win.  I think it is a difference in ability."  Source: Nikkan Sports 10/15/2012

Yomiuri Giants

The Giants are still unsure if Toshiya Sugiuchi (left shoulder, fatigue) is going to be able to pitch during the Final Stage of the Climax Series.  Source: Nikkan Sports 10/15/2012
