Notes

Hiroshima: This was the Carp's 5th straight game where the offense collected 10 or more hits in a game. The last time the Carp were in first in May was back in 2000; and the last time they scored 5 or more runs in the first inning, two games in a row: 1970. ... Iwami recorded his first pro victory today.

Yakult: Nakazawa is now 0-4 in 6 starts since his last victory on 8/7/2010 (vs Yokohama). ... Hatakeyama has hit safely in 6 straight.
