Jingu | Attendance: 22,567 | Time: 2h 54m | Swallows lead series, 14-9-0

The Swallows shut-out the Hanshin Tigers, 5-0.

Shohei Tateyama tossed a 5-hit complete game shut-out over the Hanshin Tigers and boosted the Swallows into third place.

Tateyama never allowed more than one base-runner to reach in any one inning (5 hits and 1 HBP) and recorded three 1-2-3 innings.  While two base runners did get as far as third, in both cases it was with 2 out.

On offense, the Swallows delivered:

2nd: Shinya Miyamoto (1-for-4, 2B, R, RBI) hit a 1-out double and scored when Arai (3B) made a bad throw over to first on a grounder hit by Norichika Aoki (2-for-3, IBB, R).  The throwing error also allowed Aoki to advance all the way to third.   Aoki was erased on the next play when he tried to score on Aaron Guiel's (0-for-3, BB, R) grounder to second.  Yuichi (1-for-3, 2B, RBI) then followed with an double off the right field wall to drive in Guiel from first.  But aggressive base-running ended the inning as Yuichi was thrown out at third.

6th: Aoki led off the inning with a single.  Two strike outs later, Ryohei Kawamoto (1-for-4, HR, R, 2 RBI) hit his 3rd home run of the year to  give the Swallows a 4-0 lead.

7th: with runners on first and third and 1 out, Miyamoto drove in the Swallows' 5th and final run on a ground out to short.
