Hanshin: Standridge took the loss and is now 8-6.  He's also 0-4 in 8 starts since his last victory on 7/27 (vs Chunichi).

Hiroshima: The Carp sent 10 batters to the plate in the bottom of the 3rd.  The 21 hits they banged out is a high for the CL this season. Every position player in the starting line-up had at least one hit. ... Imamura got the win in relief and is now 3-7. ... This was Matsuyama's first 4-hit game of his career. ... Nomura celebrated his 45th birthday.  The media presented him with a silver pen.  This was also the second straight year in which his team won on his birthday.
