Hanshin lefty Kei Igawa fanned eight over six innings for his 20th win while Tomoaki Kanemoto went 3-for-4 at the plate as the Tigers ended their season with a 11-3 victory over the Hiroshima Carp at Koshien Stadium for their club best 87th win.

Igawa (20-5) walked two and allowed two earned runs on six hits to become the first Hanshin pitcher in 24 years since Shigeru Kobayashi went 22-9 in 1979 to win 20 games.
