The Second Georgia Award for 2013 went to Tomoyuki Sugano for making a nice defensive play on April 13.

The Giants had a 1-0 lead over the Yakult Swallows heading into the top of the 6th inning.  With a runner on second and no out, Masanori Ishikawa attempted to advance the runner on a sac bunt.  But insteead of hitting the ball on the ground, he popped the pitch into the air.  Sugano was charging on contact and made a sliding catch for the first out of the inning.  The Giants won the game 3-1.  Georgia video - Box score
