The final game of the three game series at Koshien ended in a pitchers duel between constantly unlucky David Buchanan and the Tigers breakout star Akiyama.

Despite the Swallows outhitting the Tigers eight to five, they were unable to string together any sort of offense to help Buchanan.

The only scoring of the ballgame came in the bottom of the fourth inning when Toritani singled home a run. 1-0 Tigers final

The sixth place Swallows return to Jingu Stadium to start a three game series with the Central League leading Crap before heading to Yokohama as the season winds down.
