Notes

This was the first time the Carp played a game in Hiroshima on the anniversary of the atomic bombing of Hiroshima since 1958.  A moment of silence was held before the game.

Yomiuri: The Giants won their 4th game in a row. ... Tono got the win and is now 4-8. ... Kubo saved his 5th game of the year. ... Sanematsu's homer in the 2nd was his first since 6/28/2005 (first since joining the Giants).

Hiroshima: The Carp lost their 2nd game in a row and their 40th of the season.  They have also lost their last 6 games against the Giants. ... Alvarado took the loss and dropped to 1-4.
