The Hiroshima Carp had to win their game against the Chunichi Dragons tonight to advance to the Climax Series. It was a close game that was scoreless through seven full innings. Chunichi bats came alive in the top of the 8th and scored three runs on four hits, including a double and triple.
The Carp could not get their offense going and was limited to just one hit in the top of the 1st. They did put runners on in the 2nd, 6th, and 9th on walks, but failed to get anyone past second base.
With the 3-0 loss to Chunichi, Hiroshima finishes the season in fourth place, a half-game behind Hanshin.
