Notes

Other: First base ump Kazuyuki Shirai left after the top of the 3rd inning because he wasn't feeling well.  Katsumi Manabe took over at first after Shira's departure.

Chunichi: Tanishige's homer in the 3rd was his first at Jingu Stadium since he hit a pair back on 7/7/2009.

Yakult: The Swallows picked up their 14th tie of the season, which also happens to be the most since they finished the 1981 season with 16 ties. ... Barnette surrendered his first homer since 8/15/2010. ... Guiel recorded his first hit of the season in his 20th trip to the plate.
