The Chunichi Dragons and the Hiroshima Carp have been on the other side of all those scoreless innings: the Dragons' pitching staff has not allowed a run since the 8th inning for their game against the Hiroshima Carp on April 1, a span of twenty nine innings.  And Hiroshima's staff has not allowed a run since the 5th inning of their game against the Yomiuri Giants on April 4, a span of twenty-two innings.
