Kawabata extended his hitting streak to eleven games.  He left the game on defense in the bottom of the 6th because he fouled a ball off his right calf during his at bat in the top half of the inning. ...

Muranaka's wild pitch in the bottom of the 1st allowed the first run of the game to score.

Hiroshima: Nomura got the win and is 6-3 in fourteen starts.  He is also 4-0 over his last seven starts since his last loss on May 12 (vs Chunichi). ... Mickolio saved his tenth game of the year. ... Amaya recorded his fourth modasho of the year and first four-hit game since September 18, 2010 (vs Yokohama). ... Hirose's triple in the 6th was his first since August 6, 2010 (vs Yomiuri). ... The Carp won their fifth in a row.  They also recorded their twelfth shutout victory of the season.
