Notes

Eco-Doala made his appearance at Nagoya Dome today and failed to land a back flip after the 7th.

Yomiuri: The Giants 3-game winning streak came to an end.  They were also handed their 9th shutout loss of the season (and 2nd 0-1 loss). ... Utsumi took the loss and is now 12-3 (and 2-1 in 3 starts against Chunichi).  His personal 3-game winning streak also came to an end.

Chunichi: The Dragons stopped a 2-game winning streak.  They also recorded their 11th shutout victory of the year (and 7th 1-0 victory). ... Chen won his 2nd straight start and is now 5-7 (and 1-2 in 4 starts against the Giants).  This was also his first shutout of the year (8th of his career).  Chen had a perfect game until Ogasawara's single in the top of the 8th.
