The Yomiuri Giants swept the Hiroshima Carp three games to none and will advance to the Nippon Series for the second year in a row.  Hiroshima took the early lead in two of the three games, but failed to hold on to any of them in losing three straight to the Giants.

Tatsunori Hara was tossed into the air ten times before the entire team took their walk around the field.  Tomoyuki Sugano was selected Climax Series MVP.

The media learned that Hara was formally offered an extension by team owner Kojiro Shiraishi after the game and accepted.  Terms will be decided at a later date
