Notes

Hanshin: The Tigers went back-to-back-to-back for the first time since 8/12/2010 (9th time overall); first against the Yomiuri Giants since 1985 (2nd overall). ... This was the first time Arai hit homers in 3 straight since 2007 (when he played for Hiroshima).  And it marked the 6th time he's done it in his career. ... This was Nomi's first complete game victory since 4/24/2009 (4th overall).

Yomiuri: Tono's homer in the 3rd was the first of his career.
