Notes

Hanshin: The Tigers suffered their third shutout loss of the season and second in a row (they have not scored a run in 23 consecutive innings). ... Uemoto was supposed to move Shunsuke over to third with a sac bunt in the top of the 6th, but gave up after failing on two sac bunt attempts.

Softbank: The Hawks recorded back-to-back complete game shutout victory for the first time since 4/29, 5/1/1997. ... This was Yamada's first shutout of his career.  He also became the first Japanese player that got his start as an Ikusei player to record a complete game shutout.
