Notes

The Giants have won 5 games in a row.  They have also won 5 of 7 series this month.  The other two: a series loss to the Hanshin Tigers and a 1-1 series split against the Yakult Swallows. ... The Carp have lost three games in a row.  They are currently 3-3-1 over 7 series this month. ... The Carp have surrendered 14 home runs to the Giants so far this season. ... The home run Obispo (YOM) hit was the first of his career in Japan.  It was also the first home run by a foreign pitcher since 1999 when Balvino Galvez hit a home run in a Giants' uniform.  Obispo originally came up as a shortstop. ... Takahashi (YOM) hit his first home run since 9/23/2008.
