Tokyo Yakult Swallows manager Junji Ogawa said Sunday he intends to take responsibility for the Central League club’s poor performance this year and retire when his two-year contract expires at the end of the season.

The announcement follows Yakult’s 10-6 loss to the Yomiuri Giants on Saturday, which ensured the last-place Swallows will miss out on a spot in the Climax Series. Yakult head coach Shinya Miyamoto said he also plans to leave the club.
