Notes

General: The game ended with the bases loaded and no out in the top of the 9th because of rain.

Yakult: The Swallows's two-game winning streak against the Tigers came to an end. ... Akagawa made his first start since July 28, 2013.  He is 0-8 since his last win on September 26, 2012. ... Kawabata recorded his fifteenth modasho of the year; Nakamura his seventh.

Hanshin: The Tigers won their second straight at Koshien Stadium.  This was their first game back at Koshien since August 1. ... Nomi is 2-1 in four starts this month.  He is 2-2 in four starts against Yakult this year.  He also stopped a six-game losing streak at Koshien with his first Koshien win since April 18. ... Kano played in his first Ichi-gun game since September 10, 2013.  He homered for the first time since August 31, 2012.  This was the first modasho of his career.

      There may have been other options, but they most likely decided to give him another shot after his last Ni-gun outing:

      Start against Seibu on August 12: W, 6.2 IP, 25 BF, 5 H, 1 BB, 5 SO, 2 ER

      He also did so-so in his start before that: vs Yomiuri on August 5, L, 5.2 IP, 24 BF, 8 H, 2 BB, 1 SO, 3 ER.

      Not spectacular, but considering their pitching situation, probably good enough.
