Notes

The start of the game was delayed an hour due to rain.  There was also a rain delay in the middle of the 6th (after Soyogi hit his home run) that lasted forty-one minutes.

HR: YAK: Milledge (16, one on, off K. Maeda).  HIR: Soyogi (8, none on, off Masubuchi).

Yakult: The Swallows won their second in a row.  They also snapped a four-game losing streak (0-4-1) against the Carp. ... Nakazawa made his first start of the year and got the win.  The victory was his first since August 7, 2010 (vs Yokohama). ... Barnette recorded his twenty-first save of the year. ... Ueda recorded the first modasho of his career. ... Nakazawa's wild pitch with runners on first and third in the top of the 2nd allowed the Carp to take a 1-0 lead.

Hiroshima: The Carp lost their second straight game. ... K. Maeda dropped his second straight start and is 11-5 in twenty-one games. ... Imamura's consecutive scoreless appearances streak ended at twenty-nine. ... Soyogi collected his fifth modasho of the season. ... Soyogi's fielding error in the top of the 3rd with two out kept the inning going and ultimately allowed the Swallows to score three unearned runs.
