Yomiuri Giants

  • The Giants have won three games this year where the offense has recorded three or fewer hits: May 9 against Yokohama (three hits), June 4 against Orix (three hits), August 29 against Chunichi (three hits). The last time they won three games on three or fewer hits in one season was in 1994: May 6 against Chunichi (three hits), August 14 against Hanshin (two hits), August 24 against Yakult (three hits).

Hanshin Tigers

  • Matt Murton recorded three hits on August 30 and is now one hit away from 1,000.

Yokohama Bay Stars

  • Guillermo Moscoso will be sent down to Ni-gun for an adjustment. Hiroshi Kobayashi will most likely be called up to bolster the bullpen. Duane Below could get a start on September 6 against Yomiuri. Source: Daily Sports 8/30/2015
  • The Bay Stars have dropped their last eleven straight extra inning games. They are currently tied with 1995 Kintetsu for most consecutive extra inning losses (going back to 1950). Source: Sponichi 8/30/2015

Yakult Swallows

  • Tetsuto Yamada blasted his thirty-third home run of the year on August 29 and joined Toru Sugiura (thirty-four in 1985), Takahiro Ikeyama (thirty-four in 1989) and Akinori Iwamura (forty-four in 2004) as the only Japanese players in franchise history to hit thirty-four or more home runs in one season.

Yomiuri Giants

  • With their victory on August 28, the Giants pushed their record against Chunichi to 1,000-806-54. The Dragons are the second team the Giants have beaten at least 1,000 times. The Giants notched their 1,000th victory against Hanshin earlier this year on April 4. Source: Sponichi 8/29/2015 ... Through August 28, the Giants are 1,012-784-67 against the Hanshin Tigers. Source: Sanspo 8/29/2015

Hanshin Tigers

  • Through August 29, Matt Murton is four away from 1,000 NPB hits.
  • Shintaro Fujinami picked up his third shutout of the year on August 28 and became the first Hanshin pitcher to toss three shutouts in one season since Randy Messenger recorded three in 2013 and 2014; and the first Japanese Hanshin pitcher since Kei Igawa notched three in 2006. Source: Sponichi 8/29/2015 ... Fujinami is the first Hanshin pitcher out of high school to record three shutouts in a season within his first three years in the NPB since Yutaka Enatsu tossed seven in 1969. Source: Sanspo 8/29/2015
  • Braves' scout Hiroyuki Oya on Shintaro Fujinami: "He's a top level pitcher in Japan. He could pitch in the Majors. He's the type people in America like. He's a power pitcher that can hit the upper 150s (km/h) and he's big. There's a lot of eyes on Hiroshima's [Kenta] Maeda, but [Fujinami's] a different kind of pitcher and he's wonderful. Nippon Ham's [Shohei] Otani is in the same age group, but Fujinami has kept his spot in the starting rotation for three years. I think he might be the best young pitcher in Japan."

Hiroshima Carp

Yokohama Bay Stars

  • The Bay Stars set a new franchise record on August 28 with their thirty-third sellout. The previous record of thirty-two was set in 1998, the last time they won the pennant and the Nippon Series. Source: Sponichi 8/29/2015

The worst finishes at this point belong to the 1960 Chunichi Dragons and the 2012 Cihba Lotte Marines -- both teams finished the first-half in first place but ended in fifth at the end of the season.
