Notes

HR: YOM: Y. Takahashi (8, one on, off Bullington).

Hiroshima: The Carp's winning streak ended at two games.  They were also handed their thirteenth shutout loss of the year. ... Bullington took the loss and dropped to 6-10 in twenty-two starts.  His three-game winning streak ended with his first loss in seven starts since his last defeat on June 30 (vs Yokohama). ... Soyogi committed a throwing error in the bottom of the 1st that allowed the Giants to score an unearned run.  Dobayashi also committed an error: in the bottom of the 8th, led to two unearned runs.  Sogoyi (16) and Dobayashi (23) account for thirty-nine of the team's eighty-two errors this season.

Yomiuri: The Giants stopped a two-game losing streak with their fifteen shutout victory of the season.  They are also 4-0-1 over their last five against the Carp.  Yomiuri is the first team in either league to win sixty games this year. ... Utsumi got the win and is 11-6 in twenty-one starts.  This was his second shutout of the year, ninth of his career.  He is also 4-0 in six starts since his last loss on July 4 (vs Yokohama) and 5-0 over his last six starts at Tokyo Dome. ... Y. Takahashi recorded the 300th home run of his career off Bullington in the 5th inning.
