Notes

General: Figure skater Mai Asada was a Dragons' cheerleader for the day. Nikkan Sports 7/14/2014 ... A call was reversed: with runners on first and third and one out in the bottom of the 8th, Wada hit a ball to right that was originally ruled a fly out and the runner trailing runner could not return to first in time and was doubled-up for the third out of the inning.  Tanishige argued the call.  Umpires discussed the play and reversed it to a single.  Hanshin players had to return to their positions since they left the field after the original ruling.  Wada counter-argued, but to no avail. Daily Sports 7/14/2014

Hanshin: The Tigers lost their third straight game at Nagoya Dome. ... Iwazaki suffered his first loss since May 7.  He is 0-2 in four starts against the Dragons this year.  Iwazaki was hit by a batted ball in the 2nd inning: Morino hit a baseball back to the mound that struck him near the right shin; he temporarily left the field for treatment; after he returned to the mound, he gave up two consecutive hits, a double and a home run, that put the Tigers down 3-2; he was replaced by Kaneda three hitters later. Sanspo 7/14/2014 ... Uemoto recorded the first lead-off home run of his career.

Chunichi: The Dragons won their second game in a row.  They are 5-0-1 over their last six against the Tigers.  They became the fourth team in the Central League to win forty games this year. ... Asakura stopped a personal two-game losing streak with his first win in five games (four starts) since his last win (in relief) on June 3.  This was his first appearance against the Tigers this season. ... Wada recorded his seventh modasho of the year. ... Araki returned to the starting line-up for the first time since May 29. ... This was S. Takahashi's first game of the year.
