Notes

Doala's streak of turning back-flips ended at 4.

Ejections: Ochiai was ejected from the game in the 1st inning for a delay of game. Ochiai wasn't happy with a foul call on a Hidenori bunt attempt and argued with umps for over 5 minutes.  This was the 8th ejection of his career (includes the 2 times he was ejected as a player).

Hanshin: The Tigers won their 4th game in a row.  They also picked up their 8th shutout victory of the year. ... Nomi won his 2nd straight start and is now 6-7. He also had a no-hitter going until the first batter he faced in the 8th (Hirata) collected the Dragons' only hit of the game. ... Fujikawa saved his 25th game of the year.

Chunichi: The Dragons lost their 2nd straight game. They also suffered their 16th shutout loss of the season. ... Nelson lost his 5th straight start and dropped to 6-9.

    Props to the Tigers, but my God what ever happened to the Dragons’ offense?

    Also: is Tony Blanco on the DL for the rest of the year?
