(Tigers lead series, 11-5-0)

Yuya Ando had a pretty solid start against the Bay Stars. Over 6 innings, he gave up 3 runs (all earned) on 4 hits, a walk, and 2 strike outs. His only problem was the longball: he gave up a solo homer to Takahiro Saeki (1-for-4, HR, R, RBI) in the 2nd and 2-run shot to Kazuya Fujita (1-for-4, R, 2 RBI) in the 6th.

The bullpen, specifically Satoru Kanemura, took over in the 7th and almost gave up a couple of runs when Yuki Yoshimura (1-for-4) and Takehiro Ishikawa (1-for-4) led off the inning with singles. But the Bay Stars failed to lay down the sac bunt twice and suddenly the Tigers were in good position to get out of the inning without surrendering a run. Hirotaka Egusa relieved Kanemura and got Tatsuya Shimozono to ground out to first to end the inning.

Kyuji Fujikawa tossed a perfect 9th for his 16th save of the year.

Hayato Terahara also pitched pretty well and may have been able to avoid the loss if not for an unearned run he gave up in the top of the 1st: with 2 outs, Takashi Toritani (2-for-3, BB, 2 R) singled and Tomoaki Kanemoto (1-for-4, R) reached on an error to put runners on first and second. A wild pitch moved the runners up a base and an infield single by Takahiro Arai (1-for-3, 2 RBI) scored Toritani from third.

After the 1st inning, Terahara held the Tigers' offense to 4 hits over the next 6 innings. But in the top of the 8th, he fell apart: Norihiro Akahoshi (1-for-4, 2B, R) led off with a double; Terahara walked Toritani; Kanemoto's single loaded the bases with no out; Arai hit a sac fly that made it 3-2; a wild pitch put runners on first and third; Brazell struck out; Kanemoto stole second; Kodai Sakurai (2-for-3, BB, 2B, 2 RBI) cleared the bases with a 2-run double and gave the Tigers a 4-3 lead; and Akihiro Yano (0-for-4) ended the inning with a grounder to short.

Missed Opportunities
Tigers: top of the 1st, runners on first and third, 2 out > Brazell struck out; top of the 2nd, runner on second, 2 out > Hirano lined out; top of the 6th, runner on second, 2 out > Arai grounded out; top of the 7th, runners on first and second, 2 out > Hirano grounded out; top of the 8th, runner on second, 2 out > Hirano grounded out.

Bay Stars: bottom of the 4th, runner on second, 2 out > Saeki lined out; bottom of the 6th, runner on second, 2 out > Saeki grounded out; bottom of the 7th, runners on first and second, no out > Hosoyamada failed sac bunt, Terahara failed sac bunt, and Shimozono grounded out.

(Giants lead series, 10-6-0)

The Dragons took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the 1st with the the help of two walks, follwed by a run scoring single by Kazuhiro Wada (2-for-3, BB, 2 RBI). It was Wada again in the bottom of the 3rd that gave Chunichi a 2-0 lead with a single into center after a Tony Blanco (1-for-3, BB, 2B, R) double.

The Giants scored their first run in the top of the 4th on Shigeyuki Furuki's (2-for-4, RBI) 2-out run-scoring single into center with runners on first and second. Alex Ramirez's lead-off solo homer in the top of the 6th tied the game at 2. In the top of the 9th, Shinnosuke Abe (3-for-5) and Furuki hit back-to-back singles with 2 outs and threatened to take the lead. But Wei-Ying Chen struck out pinch-hitter Noriyoshi Ohmichi to end the inning.

Meanwhile, after scoring their second run in the bottom of the 3rd, Dicky Gonzalez held the Dragons to just 1 hit over the next 5 innings. The 1 hit Gonzalez allowed came in the bottom of the 5th when he also walked 2 batters to load the bases. The Dragons turned to Kazuyoshi Tatsunami for a hit, but he ended up striking out to end the inning. After the 3rd, Giants' pitchers tossed 5 perfect shut-out innings, including Daisuke Ochi striking out the side in the bottom of the 9th.

In the top of the 10th, Takuya Asao relieved Chen to start the inning and retired the first two batters he faced. But a single to Ryota Wakiya (1-for-1, R), a double to Ramirez, and an intentional walk to Yoshiyuki Kamei (0-for-4, R, IBB) loaded the bases. The next batter, Yoshitomo Tani (1-for-5, 2 RBI), then hit a single into center that gave the Giants a 4-2 lead.

Marc Kroon retired the side in order in the bottom of the 10th for his 18th save of the year.

(Swallows lead series, 10-5-0)

After Aaron Guiel (0-for-2, HBP, BB, 2 R) and Shinya Miyamoto (1-for-3, 2B, R) got on base in the top of the 2nd with a walk and a double, respectively, Hiroyasu Tanaka's (0-for-2, BB, RBI) ground out to third made it 1-0 and Ryoji Aikawa's (3-for-4, 2 RBI) single in to center made it 2-0.

In the top of the 3rd, the Swallows tacked on another run on a run-scoring ground out by Norichika Aoki (0-for-3, BB, RBI). A fielding error by Masafumi Suenaga (CF) on Miyamoto's fly ball to center in the top of the 4th allowed Guiel to score all the way from first and gave the Swallows a 4-0 lead.

The Carp finally managed to return a run in the bottom of the 4th after Scott McClain (1-for-2, 2 BB) followed Kenta Kurihara's (2-for-4, 2B, R) double with a grounder for first that Kazuhiro Hatakeyama (1B) couldn't handle and that gave Kurihara enough time to score from second.

The Swallows scored another run in the top of the 6th on an RBI single by Aikawa with runners on first and third to make it 5-1. (The runner on third got to third by stealing second and then advanced to third on a throwing error by the catcher.)

Chang-Yong Lim entered the game in the bottom of the 9th for the Swallows and put runners on first and third before striking out Soichiro Amaya (1-for-5) to end the game.

Missed Opportunities
Swallows: top of the 4th, runners on first and third, 1 out > Tateyama struck out, K. Kawashima flied out; top of the 6th, runners on second and third, 2 > K. Kawashima lined out.

(Lions lead series 8-6-0)

Hisashi Iwakuma gave up 2 runs over 10 innings on 9 hits, 2 walks, and 10 strike outs. The first run Iwakuma surrendered came in the bottom of the 4th when Hiroyuki Nakajima (2-for-3, IBB, BB, R), Yoshihito Ishii (1-for-5), and Taketoshi Goto (2-for-5, HR, R, 2 RBI) connected for three consecutive singles (Goto's single scored Nakajima from third). Yasuyuki Kataoka's (1-for-4, HR, R, RBI) 11th homer of the year in the top of the 5th accounted for the second run.

Iwakuma almost gave up another run in the bottom of the 10th when he put runners on first and second with 2 out, but he got Y. Ishii to fly out to right for the final out of the inning.

On the other side of the diamond, Hideaki Wakui was also throwing a solid game. And like Iwakuma, he also held the Eagles to 2 runs.

In the top of the 5th, Takeshi Yamasaki (1-for-3, 2 BB, HR, R, RBI) hit his 29th home run of the year to give the Eagles a 1-0 lead. Down 2-1 in the top of the 7th, pinch-hitter Yosuke Takasu stepped up to the plate with a runner on third and tied the game with a sac fly to center.

The game went into extra innings and the Eagles almost took the lead in the top of the 10th when Jonah Bayliss loaded the bases with 1 out. But Tomoki Hoshino relieved Bayliss and struck out Teppei; and Koji Ohnuma relieved Hoshino and struck out Y. Yamasaki to end the inning.

The game was finally decided in the bottom of the 11th on Goto's walk-off homer off Tsuyoshi Kawagishi.

Missed Opportunities
Eagles: top of the 3rd, runners on second and third, 2 out > Teppei flied out; top of the 4th, runners on second and third, 1 out > M. Nakamura failed squeeze, runners on first and third, and Shima grounded out; top of the 10th, runners on first and second, no out > Linden struck out, N. Watanabe walked, bases loaded, Teppei struck out, and T. Yamasaki struck out; top of the 11th, runners on first and second, no out > M.

Ishii lined out; bottom of the 7th, runner on second, 1 out > Hara fouled out to third and Kuriyama grounded out; bottom of the 10th, runners on first and second, 2 out > Y. Ishii flied out.

Game Notes
The Lions outhit the Eagles, 10-4. ... The Eagles did not call for a squeeze in the top of the 4th -- M. Nakamura made that decision on his own. ... It was Goto's first walk-off homer in his pro career. ... Iwakuma and Wakui will likely face each other again when the two teams meet up again next Kleenex Stadium.

In the top of the 2nd, the Hawks tied the game at 2 after Hidenori Tanoue (1-for-3, RBI) followed Yuya Hasegawa's (1-for-4, 2B, R) lead-off double with a single into right. But Tomoya Satozaki's (1-for-3, BB, HR, 2 R, RBI) solo homer in the bottom of the inning put the Marines back out in front, 3-2.

Both teams went down in order in the 3rd and after the Hawks went down in order in the 4th, the Marines's offense got busy in the bottom of the 4th: Iguchi led off with a walk; Tasuku Hashimoto (0-for-4) struck out; Satozaki flied out for the second out of the inning; back-to-back walks to Kazuya Fukuura (2-for-3, BB, 2B, 2 R, RBI) and Toshiaki Imae (1-for-3, BB, 3B, R, 2 RBI) loaded the bases; Nishioka drove in 2 runs with a double to right; Keisuke Hayasaka (1-for-5, 2 RBI) drove in 2 runs with a single into left and a throwing error by Kenji Akashi (LF) allowed him to advance to second; and Saburo (0-for-4) struck out to end the inning.

Yuichi Honda's (1-for-3, 2 BB, 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI) double into center cleared the bases and Munenori Kawasaki (1-for-4, RBI) scored Honda from second on a single into right to make it 10-5. Ohmine finally got the last out of the game by getting Motohiro Yoshikawa (0-for-1) to fly out to right.

(Fighters lead series, 10-5-0)

The Buffaloes took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the second on a 1-out wild pitch with runners on first and third; and on a bases loaded sac fly to left by Tomotaka Sakaguchi (4-for-5, HR, 4 R, 3 RBI). The Buffaloes extended their lead in the bottom of the 3rd on an RBI double by Tuffy Rhodes (1-for-4, IBB, BB, 2B, RBI).

The Fighters finally pushed a run across in the top of the 4th on an RBI single by Shinji Takahashi (3-for-5, 2B, 4 RBI). But the Buffaloes answered back with a 2-run homer off the bat of Sakaguchi in the bottom of the inning that gave the Buffaloes a 5-1 lead. An RBI single by Jose Fernandez (2-for-4, R, RBI) in the bottom of the 6th made it 6-1.

Single runs in the top of the 7th (with runners on first and second and 2 out, Tomohiro Nioka singled home a run) and 8th (with runners on first and third and 1 out, Takahashi singled home a run) brought the Fighters to within 4 runs of taking the lead.

In the top of the 9th, the Fighters exploded for 5 runs on 6 hits: Daisuke Kato entered the game for Buffaloes; Yoshio Itoi (2-for-4, HPB, 2B, 2 R) led off with a double; pinch-hitter Tomochika Tsuboi (1-for-1, R, RBI) singled Itoi home; Makoto Kaneko (1-for-5, 2B, R, RBI) scored Tsuboi from first with a double to left; Kensuke Tanaka (3-for-4, IBB, 2 R) bunted Kaneko to third; pinch-hitter Naoto Inada (2-for-2, 2B, R, 3 RBI) singled Kaneko home; Atsunori Inaba (3-for-6, R) hit a single and put runners on first and second with 1 out; Masanobu Ohkubo relieved Kato; Takahashi cleared the bases with a double to center; Terrmel Sledge (0-for-4, BB) grounded out to first; and Eiichi Koyano (1-for-5, R) struck out to end the inning.

But the Buffaloes managed to tie the game in the bottom of the 9th against Fighters' closer Hisashi Takeda. With Sakaguchi on first and Masahiro Abe (2-for-3, BB, 2B, R, 2 RBI) on second, pinch-hitter Hirotoshi Kitagawa hit a grounder to short. The Fighters tried to turn 2, but a bad throw from the shortstop to first allowed Kitagawa to reach first and Sakaguchi to score from second. The tying run scored on a walk and a fly out later, with runners on first and third, on Keiji Ohbiki's (2-for-6, 2 RBI) 2-out single.

The Fighters took the lead again in the top of the 10th on a 2-out, 2-run double by Inada, but the Buffaloes once again battled back in the bottom of the 10th. With Yoshinori Tateyama on the mound to start the inning, the Buffaloes put runners on first and second with 1 out. The next batter, Abe, cleared the bases with a double to right and tied the game at 10. A ground out, IBB, and walk later, with the bases loaded, Ohbiki hit a single to center to give the Buffaloes a 11-10 victory over the Fighters.
