Two teams in the hunt for the interleague championship will clash on Tuesday, when the Central League’s Yomiuri Giants host the Pacific League’s Orix Buffaloes.

The Giants, the only CL team to finish first over the first nine years of interleague play, enter the two-game series at Tokyo Dome with a one-game lead over Orix. The Giants could clinch their second title as early as Wednesday with a sweep of the Buffaloes and a loss by the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks on Tuesday.
