Kimiyasu Kudo was tossed into the air seven times. Yuya Hasegawa (five times), Yusuke Torigoe infield/base coach (five times), Dennis Sarfate (five times), Seiichi Uchikawa (four times), Masaumi Shimizu battery coach (five times), and Keizo Kawashima (three times) were also tossed into the air.

Nippon Series MVP

  • Dennis Sarfate (Softbank)

Outstanding Players

  • Yuki Yanagita (Softbank)
  • Seiichi Uchikawa (Softbank)
  • Toshiro Miyazaki (Yokohama)
  • Haruhiro Hamaguchi (Yokohama)

[UPDATE 11/5 @ 10:41pm]

The Hawks prepared 3,000 bottles of beer, 480 bottles of coke, four barrels of sake, and sixty bottles of sake for their celebration.

[11/4/2017] Nippon Series: Game 6, 7 potential starters

Kodai Senga might get tonight’s start against the Yokohama Bay Stars, but could also be skipped due to possible pain/tightness in his back. If he does get skipped, Nao Higashihama could get tonight’s start instead. The Softbank Hawks could then turn to Shota Takeda if the series goes to seven games.

Incidentally, if Senga gets tonight’s start, Higashihama will become the possible game seven starter with Takeda and Tsuyoshi Wada heading to the bullpen.

Yokohama will likely go with Shota Imanaga tonight. If the series goes to seven games, the Bay Stars could turn to Haruhiro Hamaguchi. Shoichi Ino will most likely be shifted to the bullpen.
