Notes

Play was momentarily paused in the bottom of the 7th when Fujimura's (YOM) grounder back to the mound hit Bullington (HIR) in the leg.

Hiroshima: The Carp lost their 2nd straight game and their 2nd walk-off loss of the season. ... Sarfate took the loss in relief and dropped to 1-2.

Yomiuri: The Giants won their 2nd game in a row.  This was also their 4th walk-off victory of the year. ... Kubo got the win in relief and improved to 4-1. ... Tono started the game on 1-day of rest -- he lasted only an inning (30 pitches) during his last start on the 9th (vs Hiroshima). ... The walk-off was Y. Takahashi's 5th of his career, first since 7/6/2003 (and the first that wasn't a homer).
