Notes

Manga/anima character Meitantei Conan threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

HR: YOM: Chono (2, one on, off Nomi), Murata (2, none on, off Nomi).

Yomiuri: Sugiuchi recorded his eighteen shutout victory of his career.  His is also the first left-handed Giant to record a one-hit shutout since Kazutomo Miyamoto in 1991. ... Y. Takahashi became the 175th player in NPB history to play in 1,500 career. ... The Giants notched their fourth shutout victory of the season.

Hanshin: Nomi has now dropped his last three starts in a row. ... Kanemoto made the starting line-up as a clean-up hitter for the first time since June 13, 2010.  T. Arai was dropped down to the six-hole. ... Fujii got into the game on defense in the 7th inning. ... The Tigers suffered their sixth shutout loss of the year and second in as many games.  They are 0-5-2 since their last victory on April 26.  The one-hit shutout loss is a first since May 1, 2008 (vs Yakult).  The offense has not homered in fifteen consecutive games and the last time they went eight straight games with two or fewer run scored was in 1971.
