The Hanshin Tigers advanced to the final stage of the Central League playoffs on Sunday thanks to a 0-0 tie with the Hiroshima Carp in Game 2 of the Central League Climax Series first stage.

Nippon Professional Baseball’s rules limit Climax Series games to 12 innings and award any series that is tied to the higher-seeded team. The Tigers were therefore declared the winner of the best-of-three series on the strength of one win and one tie.
