The Chunichi Dragons recorded their 12th walk-off victory of the year last night and set a new club record.  They also extended their winning streak at Nagoya Dome to 11 games.

In addition that:

Takuya Asao set a new club record with his 70th appearance of the year.  The previous record of 69 was set by Hiroshi Gondo in 1961.  Incidentally, 44 of those 69 games were made as a starter (32 were complete games).

They have kept the Hanshin Tigers scoreless over 30 innings at Nagoya Dome.  The last time the Hanshin Tigers scored a run: August 7th on an RBI single by Takahiro Arai (HAN) in the top of the 6th with a runner on second and 2 out.  Masahiro Yamamoto was charged with the run.
