The Seventh Georgia Award for 2014 went to Yuki Matsui for his relief appearance against the Orix Buffaloes on July 2.

Matsui entered the game in the 5th with runners on first and second and two out.  He kept a 2-0 shutout intact by getting Wily Mo Pena to ground out to second.  He continued to protect the 2-0 lead and struck out five over 2.1 innings of work.  He gave up two hits, but did not issue any walks.  He picked up the first Ichi-gun victory of his career.  The Eagles won the game, 2-0. Georgia video - Box score
