Notes

Hiroshima: The Carp lost their second game in a row and their fourth straight at Tokyo Dome.  They were also handed their fourteenth shutout loss of the year.  And for the second time this season, they suffered two shutout losses in a row. ... Imamura took the loss in relief and is 1-1 in forty-seven games.

Yomiuri: The Giants won their second game in a row and recorded their sixteenth shutout victory of the year.  They are also 5-0-1 over their last six against the Carp.  This was the first time they recorded back-to-back shutout victories against the Carp since 2007 (September 15, 16). ... Maru was Houlton's 500th strikeout victim. ... Yamaguchi got the win in relief and is 1-2 in fifty-five games. ... Murata picked up his sixth modasho of the year. ... The Giants used up all sixteen of their position players after eight inning.  Pitchers Kyosuke Takagi and Seiji Tahara were called to the dugout for emergency purposes -- Takagi has outfield experience and Tahara infield experience.  Hara, perhaps jokingly, told reporters he might call on Sakamoto to get behind the plate if necessary.  Source: Nikkan Sports 8/18/2012
