Notes

Injuries: Soyogi was removed from the game on defense in the 6th inning after he fouled a ball off his left knee during his at bat in the 5th.

Hanshin: The Tigers have now recorded double-digit hits in 3 straight. ... This was Tsuru's first start of the year.  He also hasn't won a game since 7/3 (vs Yomiuri).  That's a span of 12 games, 6 as a starter.

Hiroshima: The Carp stopped a 4-game losing streak in Fukui that began on 6/8/2004. ... Fielding / base-running coach Shinji Taka is now 1-1 as a manager. ... Bullington won his second straight start and improved to 7-3. ... Sarfate saved his 16th game of the year.
