Notes

Hanshin: The Tigers won their second game in a row.  They have also won their last four games against the Swallows.  This was their twelfth shutout victory of the season. ... Messenger is 3-0 in five games (four starts) since his last loss on June 22 (vs Yokohama).  He is 4-0 in five starts against the Swallows this year. ... Yamato's hitting streak ended at seven games.  T. Arai extended his hitting streak to five games. ... R. Arai hit two homers and collected six RBI in a game for the first time in his Ichi-gun career.  He smacked his third grand slam of the season (two have come this month) in the 7th inning.

Yakult: The Swallows have lost five straight games.  This was their twelfth shutout loss of the year.  They have allowed ten or more runs in their last three games.  They are the first team in the NPB to lose fifty games this season. ... Yagi suffered his first loss in five starts since his last loss on June 12 (vs Softbank).  He is 1-2 in five starts against the Tigers this year. ... In the 2nd inning, Yagi snagged a hotshot grounder back to the mound but could not get the ball out of the glove and threw the whole thing over to first base.  Source: Daily Sports 7/24/2013
