Notes

The Swallows are 2-1-2 over their last 5 games and are now 59-58-4 (4th place). ... The Carp lost their 2nd game in a row and are now 48-72-2 (5th place).

Lim (YAK) got the win in relief and is now 1-2 on the year. ... Imai (HIR) took the loss in relief and dropped to 0-3 this year.

Iihara's walk-off homer tonight was the first of his career.

Tonight's loss for the Carp means they can't finis the season with a winning record.  The Carp have not had a record over 500 since 2001.

Asuka Kuramoto, from the AKB48 spin-off group French Kiss, threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Home runs
HIR: Soyogi (10), Kurihara (9)
YAK: D'Antona (13), Iihara (14)
