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.

    Surprised that akagawa gets a start given that he didn t play well all season. Hope he does better.

      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.
