Notes

HR: CHU: Y. Matsui (1, none on, off Sugiuchi).

Chunichi: The Dragons are 3-0-2 since their last loss on July 27 (vs Yakult). ... M. Kobayashi got the win in relief and is 2-0 in twenty-six games. ... Yamai recorded his first save of the year (first since September 13, 2009 against Yakult). ... Y. Matsui's homer in the 3rd inning was the first of his Ichi-gun career.

Yomiuri: The Giants dropped their first series since April 20-22 (vs Yakult) -- a span of twenty-eight consecutive series. ... Yamaguchi took the loss in relief -- his first since July 5, 2011 (vs Yakult) -- and is 0-1 in forty-eight games.  He allowed the game-winning run to score on an HBP with the bases loaded and two out in the top of the 9th. ... Y. Takahashi misplayed (no error) a ball hit by Morino in the 9th inning that allowed a run to score and put runners on second and third with one out.
