Notes: Miho Takagi threw a ceremonial pitch after the 5th inning. ... Every player in the Fighters' starting lineup had a run scored. ... This was Tomochika Tsuboi 1,000th career game. ... Masao Kida made an emergency appearance after Bobby Keppel complained of pain in his left flank. ... Bum-Ho Lee's single in the 7th was his first official hit in Japan. ... The last time the Hawks gave up 16 runs in one game was in 2002.  The 9 runs Dennis Houlton surrendered established a new career high. ... The Fighters sent 14 players to the plate in the 2nd, recorded 8 base hits (4 doubles), and scored 10 runs. ... Masataka Nashida recorded his 500th career managerial win.
