Notes

Hanshin took the series, 2-1.

The Tigers won their 2nd game in a row and are now 56-43-2 (1st place). ... The Swallows lost their 2nd game in a row and are now 49-52-2 (4th place).

Kubota (HAN) got the win in relief and improved to 5-2.  Fujikawa saved his 21st game of the year. ... Matsuoka (YAK) took the loss and dropped to 2-3 on the year.

Whitesell (YAK) has hit safely in 8 straight games.

Kanemoto (HIR) skied a pitch in the 2nd inning that apparently hit a portion of the ceiling called the super ring.  According to the rules of the stadium, balls that hit the super ring are considered in play, but the first base ump, Ryotaro Sakai, immediately made a foul call, stopping play.  The umps convened and spent some time discussing what should happen.  In the end, the call stood, play resumed, and Kanemoto ended up hitting a solo homer.  Incidentally, this also happened to be Sakai's first game as an Ichi-gun ump.

Home runs
YAK: Aikawa (11), D'Antona (12)
HAN: Arai (13), Kanemoto (10), Murton (13)
