8:38PM UPDATE: The Lions currently have a 2-1 lead over the Giants in the bottom of the 8th. Wakui is still in the game for the Lions. Shinnosuke Abe is up to bat with 2 strikes against him.

8:39PM UPDATE: Abe flies out to center for the second out of the inning. Uehara tossed 7 full innings and was replaced by Daisuke Ochi in the 8th. Abe came in to pinch hit for Ochi in the bottom of the 8th.

8:44PM UPDATE: Kentaro Nishimura is pitching for the Giants in the top of the 9th. Alex Graman is warming in the Lions' pen.

8:49PM UPDATE: Wakui is not in the dugout, so there's a good chance that Graman will be in for the 9th. Nishimura just struck out the last two batters he faced to end in the inning. The Giants have their 2, 3, and 4 hitters coming up to bat in their half of the 9th.

8:52PM UPDATE: Graman is indeed on the mound to start the 9th. With the way Wakui was pitching, I'm guessing they're happy he's gone.

9:00PM UPDATE: Graman gets Ramirez to ground into a double play for the final two outs of the game. Lions take the first game of the series.

UPDATE: Box scores from the game are now available.
