Notes

Hiroshima: The Carp stopped a 7-game losing streak at Mazda Stadium and a 7-game losing streak against the Rakuten Eagles. ... K. Maeda recorded his first victory 8 starts (last W was on 4/26 vs Hanshin). It was also his 6th career double-digit strikeout game (2nd this season). K. Maeda is now 8-3 lifetime during Inter-league play. ... The double steal in the 6th started with Ishihara getting Jimenez to come off the mound with the ball; Amaya then took off for home and by then, it was too late. Youtube link.
