Notes

Chunichi: Tanishige has now hit at least one homer in 23 straight seasons. ... Guzman made a nice running grab on a fly ball hit into right by Arai in the 4th inning with a runner on second and 2 out.  He also threw out Murton at home plate in the 6th.

Hanshin: Nomi's 5-game winning streak at Koshien came to an end (he last lost at Koshien on 9/18/2009).  This was also Nomi's first loss against the Dragons since 8/12/2006. ... Murton has hit safely in 7 straight.
