Notes

HR: HAN: T. Arai 2 (8, one on, off Akagawa; one on, off Hirai), Brazell (9, one on, off Oshimoto).

Hanshin: Iwata got the win and is 6-11 in nineteen starts.  He stopped a personal six-game losing streak with his first win in eight starts since his last victory on June 11 (vs Softbank). ... Fujikawa recorded his seventeenth save of the year. ... This was T. Arai's second two-homer game of the season.  FWIW: in both games, he hit the home runs in back-to-back trips to the plate. ... Brazell recorded the first pinch-hit home run of his career (and first home run since June 30 vs Yakult). ... Murton was immediately replaced after he misplayed two consecutive balls hit to left by Kawamoto and Yamada in the 3rd inning.

Yakult: The Swallows lost their third straight game. ... Hirai took the loss in relief and is 2-2 in twenty games. ... Tanaka was removed from the game (top of the 4th) after he felt discomfort in his right hand.
