Notes

Hanshin: The Tigers suffered their 4th walk-off loss of the year. ... The run Enokida allowed in the 10th was just the second he has allowed in 19.2 innings of work.  He also suffered his first loss of his career. ... Brazell knocked out his first homer in 10 games. It was also his 19th Inter-league homer of his career. ... Toritani was back at short for the first time since 5/15 (a span of 8 games where he was either the DH or a pinch-hitter).

Rakuten: The Eagles recorded their 3rd walk-off victory of the year. ... Yokogawa picked up his first pro career walk-off hit.  It was also his first 3-hit game of his pro career. ... Aoyama has not dropped a game at Kleenex Stadium since 7/4/2010 (vs Nippon Ham).  That's a span of 24 games (all relief appearances) in which he's gone 4-0.
