Yomiuri, Softbank, and Orix still have chances to win the Inter-league season.  Sponichi posted the following chart to show possible outcomes:

Softbank

Orix (Yakult)
2-0-0 1-0-1 0-0-2 1-1-0 0-1-1 0-2-0
2-0-0 Softbank Softbank Softbank Softbank Softbank Softbank

0-1-1 Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri
0-0-2 Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri Yomiuri

The left column and top row represents possible outcomes for Softbank and Orix on Saturday and Sunday.  Softbank will be playing Yomiuri at Tokyo Dome.  Orix will be playing Yakult at Jingu Stadium.

According to the chart, the only way Orix can clinch first during Inter-league play is if they go 2-0 against Yakult and Softbank goes 1-0-1 against Yomiuri.  But it will all be over today if Yomiuri beats Softbank.
