Notes

Injury: Suzuki injured his right hand while making a diving catch, on a fly ball hit by Maru, in the 2nd inning.

Yomiuri: Greisinger won his first game since 9/10/2010 (vs Yokohama).  He also stopped a 5-game losing streak against Hiroshima (last victory on 4/29/2008 at Tokyo Dome) and a 5-game losing streak in Hiroshima (last victory in Hiroshima on 5/19/2007).  This was also the first victory by a Giants' foreign starter since 9/12/2010 (Dicky Gonzalez vs Hiroshima at Tokyo Dome).

Hiroshima: Maru's triple in the 5th was the first of his career.
