The Eighth Georgia Award for 2013 went to Softbank Hawk Seiichi Uchikawa for his walk-off double against the Seibu Lions on August 2.

Uchikawa made the starting line-up at DH despite fissure fractures in his third, fourth, and fifth right ribs.  He led off the 2nd inning with a double, but went 0-for-4 over his next four trips to the plate.  With the score tied at seven and a runner on first and one out in the bottom of the 12th, Uchikawa hit a walk-off double to right to give the Hawks an 8-7 victory.  Georgia video - Box score
