Notes

Yomiuri: Sawamura recorded his first victory in three starts and is now 2-3 in six starts.  He also took a batted ball of his right leg to start the 3rd inning (off Hirano's bat). ... Nishimura saved his seventh game of the year.

Hanshin: Messenger took the loss and is now 2-2 in six starts.  He is also 0-5 in his last five starts at Koshien.  His throwing error in the 2nd inning (runner on second, no out, Y. Takahashi hit an infield single) allowed the first run of the game to score. ... The Tigers have not been able to score more than two runs in any one their last ten games.  That ties a franchise record set in 1959 (August 20-30).
