Hiroshima: The Carp finally managed to stopped their 10-game losing streak.  And they also did it by beating the pitcher that got it started -- Wakui. ... Bullington recorded his first victory since 5/5. Between victories, he went 0-2 in 4 starts. ... Matsuyama picked up his first career homer in the 6th.  It was also the team's first homer since 5/22.

Seibu: The Lions dropped their 4th in a row. ... Wakui's 6-game winning streak during Inter-league play came to an end.
