Notes

HR: R. Arai (7, one on, off Fukui), T. Arai (6, two one, off Nakata).

Hiroshima: The Carp's two-game winning streak came to an end.  Their seven-game winning streak against Hanshin also ended. ... Fukui took the loss and is 2-3 in eleven games (eight starts).  Over his career, he is 1-6 in nine starts against the Tigers. ... Dobayashi hit a long triple that hit off the top of the wall in left-center and back onto the field in the 7th inning.  Nomura argued the call; the umpires reviewed replay footage and they stuck with their initial call.  Source: Nikkan Sports 8/13/2012

Hanshin: The Tigers snapped an eight-game losing streak (0-8-1).  They also stopped a fifteen-game losing streak (0-15-1) away from Koshien Stadium. ... Messenger got the win and is 6-9 in twenty-one games. This is his first victory in five starts since his last win on July 12 (vs Chunichi). ... Hirano collected his ninth modasho of the year; R. Arai the third modasho of the year. ... This marked the second time this season that the Arai brothers homered in the same game.
