Notes

Hiroshima: The Carp dropped their 6th game in a row. ... The Carp set a new franchise record of 44 consecutive innings without a run.  They are also just 5 innings away from tying the Yakult Swallows Central League record of 49 set in 1996. ... This was Tsurumoto's first Ichi-gun game of his career.

Rakuten: The Eagles notched their 5th shutout victory of the season.  This also marked the first time since 2009 (8/26 and 8/27 vs Seibu) that they tossed back-to-back shutout victories. ... Tanaka recorded his 50th career victory.
