Notes

Injury: Hirose had to be helped off the field after he tweaked his right hamstring while running to first in the 3rd inning.

Hiroshima: The Carp are 0-3-1 since their last victory on 5/14 (vs Yomiuri). ... Nomura made a mistaken when filling out the line-up - he penciled in Imamura at DH thinking he'd be able to replace him before his at bat.  But according to the rulebook, DHs must come to bat at least once during a game, unless the opposing club changes their pitcher. ... Amaya misplayed T-Okada's hit in the 7th that led to 3 runs scoring -- he played a high fly ball too aggressively and the ball bounced over his head (he was probably trying to get to the ball on the bounce but couldn't get there in time).

Orix: The Buffaloes won consecutive games for the first time this season. ... Kisanuki finally recorded his first victory of the season (in his 6th start of the year).
