Notes

The Tigers stopped a 4-game losing streak and are now 60-47-2 (1st place). ... The Carp's 3-game winning streak came to an end.  They are now 43-66-2 (5th place).

Watanabe (HAN) picked up the win in relief and even his record to 2-2 on the year. ... Kishimoto (HIR) took the loss in relief and dropped to 1-2.

The Tigers batted around twice: 12 batters in the 7th and 15 batters in the 8th.

At 42, Kanemoto (HAN) became the oldest player in league history to hit a grand slam.

Both benches cleared in the 8th inning when Arai (HAN) when a pitch grazed his head.  No one was ejected, but both benches were warned.  It seems the Tigers felt the Carp were throwing at batters intentionally after Hirano (HAN), who was hit by a pitch in the head on Tuesday night, was hit twice during the game (7th inning).

Kenjiro Nomura (HIR) apparently turned down requests for a post-game interview.  Can you blame him?

Home run
HIR: Shima (11), Iwamoto (10)
HAN: Jojima (22), Kanemoto (12), Asai (3), Toritani (15), Hiyama (1)

      Must have been an interesting game to watch live.

      Although probably an awful game to watch for Carp fans.
