Notes

The Swallows swept the series, 3-0.

The Swallows won their 4th straight game and are now 39-48-2 (4th place). ... The Carp dropped their third game in a row and are now 34-53-2 (5th place).

Yoshinori (YAK) got the win and evened his record to 6-6 on the year.  He also improved to 3-0 in 3 starts against Hiroshima this season.  This was Yoshinori's first complete game of his career. ... Stults (HIR) lost his 5th straight start and has not won a game since 6/5 (vs Softbank).  This was also Stults' second start and second loss against the Swallows this year.  Stults is now 3-8.

Yoshinori (YAK) topped out at 158km/h twice during the game (once in the 1st and once in the 3rd).  That ties the Japanese player speed gun record.
