Hiroshima: Kikuchi tied a postseason record with four hits. ... The game ended with Akamatsu getting thrown out at third by over-running the base on Kikuchi's infield single (there were runners on first and second with two out).

Yomiuri: The Giants won their first Final Stage Game 1 game in six attempts. ... Yamaguchi recorded his third Climax Series save. ... Sakamoto knocked out the second Climax Series home run of his career.

      Win more games and you don’t have to worry about it.

      I hate that winning your division in MLB is so meaningless. This is VERY meaningful, so you best play at your top level in the regular season.

        That’s actually no longer the case now that there are two MLB wild cards that play each other prior to the divisional round.

        I still don’t like the freebie game 1
        The 1 seed already got a bye and they get all the games at home. How much is enough?
        The games should be played on the field.
        Plus, they changed to this rule because a certain No. 1 seed (Yomiuri) failed to advance in 2007.

          I agree with IM. I have no problem with the first place team getting a freebie or all the games at home, but both seems excessive. There wasn’t much excitement in that series. And now I have no baseball to watch tonight!

            Home games are for revenue purposes. If we keep the one-win advantage but change the home after the game 2 games and game 5 games, there will be many instances where the 1st team doesn’t get to host more games than the 2nd team.

            If we get rid of the one-win advantage but play every game at the 1st team’s home, there will be many instances where the 2nd team advances. I don’t think the home-ness matters that much in a short series between two close, top teams (unlike this year’s Giants and Carp). After all, they are placed in the 1st and 2nd after playing 144 games.

          2. IM

            The 1 seed gets a bye of the whole first round.

            I don’t mind that they get home field the whole series, It’s not hard to travel in Japan, visiting fans can make it to games, and getting to bat in the bottom of the ninth is an advantage. I would rather see them get rid of the one-game advantage.
            If the whole goal is to get the 1 seed to advance, let’s just get rid of the playoffs and do it like they used to.
            If you can’t win games when it’s all on the line then you don’t deserve to go to the Japan Series, just my opinion.

    A great win for Yomiuri coming from behind. There is an important difference between the two bullpens. The next game against Kenta Maeda could be tough.
