Notes

The Tigers 5-game winning streak came to an end.  Their loss also allows the Giants to retake sole possession of first (a win would have meant the Tigers taking sole possession of first regardless the outcome of the Giants' game). ... The Dragons are 4-0 against the Tigers at Nagoya Dome. ... Asakura (CHU) bounced back nicely from a 7-earned run outing against the Yomiuri Giants on 4/27.  He is now 2-1 on the year. ... Shimoyanagi's (HAN) personal 2-game winning streak comes to an end.  He falls to 2-2. ... Jojima (HAN) was hit by a pitch for the 100th time of his career in the 2nd inning. ... Tanishige (CHU) played in his 2,450th career game.  That's good for 8th on the All-time list.
