Notes

The Carp snapped a 3-game losing streak. ... The Tigers 2-game winning streak came to an end. ... Kawasaki (HAN) recorded his first loss of the year. ... Shinoda (HIR) evened his record out to 1-1 with a victory. ... Fiorentino's 2-run single in the fourth actually gave the Tigers some problems in the field as Tortani and Murton knocked into each other while trying to catch the ball. ... 11 runs is the most the Tigers have given up in one game this year. ...The 17 hits and 11 runs scored are both offensive highs for the Carp this year.
