Notes

As part of Yomiuri-Yakult Fan Club Day, Kazunori Shinozuka faced Naoyuki Naito in a one-at-bat match-up before the game and hit a single to right.

HR: YAK: Yamada (1, none on, off Utsumi), Kawamoto (1, none on, off Utsumi).  YOM: Murata (6, none on, off Akagawa).

Yakult: The Swallows two-game winning streak came to an end. ... Masubuchi took the loss in relief and is 2-5 in thirty-six starts. ... Yamada's homer in the 5th was the first of his Ichi-gun career.

Yomiuri: The Giants are 6-0-1 since their last loss on August 2 (vs Chunichi). ... Tahara got the win in relief (his second in as many games/days) and is 2-0 in sixteen games. ... Yamaguchi saved his fifth game of the year. ... Murata's homer in the 4th was his first at Tokyo Dome since May 28 (vs Nippon Ham).
