The Fourth Georgia Award for 2013 went to Yusei Kikuchi for start against the Hanshin Tigers on May 20.

Kikuchi held the Tigers to just one run (solo shot by Ryota Arai in the 7th) on five hits over eight innings of work to help the Lions snap a three-game losing streak.  Two years earlier on June 12, he made his Ichi-gun debut against the Tigers and had to be yanked after giving up four runs on six hits over 2.1 innings of work.  Georgia video - Box score
