Notes

HR: HAN: Brazell (4).

Yakult: Roman's two balks in the 4th inning tied a Central League record. ... The Swallows suffered their fourth shutout of the year (and the third shutout in their last five games).

Hanshin: Messenger notched his first NPB shutout victory of his career.  He also topped out at 149km/h. ... Brazell leads both leagues in homers with four.  Incidentally, he has hit all four against Yakult. ... The Tigers recorded their third shutout victory of the year.
