- Iwase returned to ichi-gun and got the hold Saturday by pitching a scoreless 8th inning. Yamai made things interesting in the 9th of that game giving up two runs and allowing the tying run to reach scoring position before getting a game-ending double play. So far Yamai has been perfect in converting save opportunities.
- Yoshimi threw another shutout in his start against Yomiuri. He allowed only 1 earned run on 6 hits and only one walk.

Week in Review: August 13 - August 20
Another solid week for the team, winning both home series 2-1. Winning the series against Yomiuri was especially important, keeping them within reaching distance. Chunichi still the plays the Giants 6 times this season, with 3 coming at Nagoya Dome. All of the games against DeNA were close, two decided by one run and the other ending in extra innings.
