Notes

Ejections: Nomura (HIR) was ejected from the game in the bottom of the 3rd when he argued an out call at first base (K. Nakamura hit a grounder to third and was called out at first) and pushed the first base ump.  Fielding / base-running coach Shinji Takahashi (HIR) took over as manager.  It was Nomura's second ejection of his career.

Chunichi: The Dragons suffered their 10th shutout loss of the year. ... Chen lost his 4th start in a row and dropped to 2-5.

Hiroshima: The Carp recorded their 3rd shutout victory of the season. ... Kishimoto picked up his first victory of the year and is now 1-0. ... Sarfate saved his 15th game of the year.
