Chunichi Dragons take the 2010 Central League Climax Series

Tags: , , ,

The Chunichi Dragons beat the Yomiuri Giants last night to take the Final Stage of the Climax Series, 4-1.  The Dragons will now face the Chiba Lotte Marines at the Nippon Series.

Some quick notes from the victory:

This marks the 9th time the Chunichi Dragons have made it to the Nippon Series.  The last time they made it was back in 2007, the same year they went on to win their their second Nippon Series.

The Chiba Lotte Marines and Dragons met at the Nippon Series back in 1974 (the Marines was called Lotte Orions at the time).  The Marines won that series, 4-2.

The Dragons tossed Hiromitsu Ochiai into the air 6 times.

Kazurhiro Wada was selected as MVP of the Climax Series.

At 45, Masahiro Yamamoto became the oldest pitcher to start a postseason game.

According to Sanspo, the first two games of the Nippon Series (the two games at Nagoya Dome) won't be televised nationally because TV ratings for Chunichi games this past season weren't very good.  The games will, however, be televised locally and will also be shown via BS and CS stations.  There's also a chance that game 5 (at Chiba Marine) won't be televised nationally as well.

Celebration sales: the Matsuzakaya store in Nagoya will be holding a Chunichi Dragons Support Sale between 10/24 and 10/26; and a number of JUSCO stores in the Nagoya area will also be running a sale.

Chiba Lotte Marines take Pacific League Climax Series

by on Oct.20, 2010 @ 4:20 am, under NPB, Postseason
Tags: , , ,

The Chiba Lotte Marines managed to stage a comeback and take the PL Final Stage Climax Series, 4-3.

Some news and notes:

This marks the 6th time the Marines have made it to the Nippon Series, and first since 2005.

The Marines held their celebration at a hotel near Yahoo Dome and went through all 3,000 bottles of beer they had prepared (Nikkan Sports mentions 3,200 bottles).  They apparently went through all the bottles in about 20 minutes.

Yoshihisa Naruse was selected as the Climax Series MVP.

Shoitsu Omatsu took home the Manulife Seimei Special Award for hitting 2 homers during the Final Stage of the Climax Series.

Tsuyoshi Nishioka broke down in tears after catching the final out of the game.  He later denied the tears.

Speaking on Fuji TV's Sport, Norifumi Nishimura joked that he wanted keep starting Naruse on 4-days of rest next year.  Nishioka, Tomoya Satozaki, Shunsuke Watanabe, and Toshiaki Imae also made appearances on the show.

The team tossed Nishimura, acting team owner Akio Shigemitsu, and team president Ryuzo Setoyama into the air three times each.

The game ball apparently went to Nishioka.

No sales at Lotteria unless the team take the Nippon Series.
