Notes

HR: YOM: Tani (2, none on, off Messenger).

Hanshin: Messenger lost his third straight start and dropped to 4-8 in fifteen starts.  He is also 0-4 over his last five starts against the Giants. ... Futagami made his Ichi-gun debut. ... Murton got the start in center for the first time this season. ... Toritani picked up his fourth modasho of the year. ... Kanemoto left the game early (he was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the 7th) because of tightness in his back. ... The Tigers dropped their fourth straight.  They are also 0-5-1 over their last six games at Tokyo Dome (going back to last season).

Yomiuri: Sawamura won his second start in a row and is 6-7 in fifteen starts. ... The Giants won their second game in a row.  They are the first team in the NPB to forty victories. ... Sakamoto's throwing error in the top of the 4th inning, with runners on first and second and one out, allowed an unearned run to score.
