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.

The Hanshin Tigers will advance to the First Stage of the Climax Series against the Yomiuri Giants.

Softbank Hawks

  • A Softbank Hawks Nippon Series championship could have an economic impact of about 40.3 billion yen in Fukuoka, according to research conducted by Fukuoka Prefecture. This assumes the Final Stage of the Climax Series goes six games and the Nippon Series goes seven games. Celebration sales alone could have an impact of about 25.4 billion yen.

Nippon Ham Fighters

  • Pitching coach Kazuyuki Atsuzawa told reporters they basically had two options with Shohei Otani: either give him a start on six days of rest on October 4 against Lotte at QVC Marine and then a limited Game 1 Climax Series start on five days of rest on October 10, or give him the Game 1 Climax Series start on twelve days of rest. After weighing the options, they decided it made more sense to give Otani the Game 1 Climax Series start on twelve days of rest. Source: ZakZak 10/6/2015

Hanshin Tigers

  • If the Tigers make the First Stage of the Climax Series, Shintaro Fujinami could get the Game 1 start on five days of rest. Fujinami is 5-4 with a 2.58 ERA in eleven starts on five days of rest this year. He is also 0-4 with a 3.94 ERA in four starts against the Yomiuri Giants at Tokyo Dome this season.
