Notes

HR: YOM: Abe (14, one on, off Tateyama), Houlton (1, none on, off Tateyama), Y. Takahashi (7, bases loaded, off Abe).

Yakult: The Swallows lost their second game in a row.  They are also 0-3-1 over their last four against the Giants (and 0-4-1 over their last four at Tokyo Dome). ... Tateyama dropped his third straight start and is 6-8 over eighteen starts.  He also developed a blister on the base of his right big toe and called timeout partway through the 1st to get some treatment for it.  Source: Nikkan Sports 8/11/2012

Yomiuri: The Giants are 7-0-1 since their last loss on August 2 (vs Chunichi). ... Houlton got the win and is 9-6 over seventeen starts.  He is also 4-0 in five starts since his last loss on June 26 (vs Hiroshima).  His homer in the 2nd inning was the first of his NPB career. ... Fujimura collected his first modasho since August 10 (vs Yokohama). ... Y. Takahashi has nine career grand slams, including two from this season.  He is also now just one homer away from 300.
