Notes: Like Todd Linden, Norihiro Nakamura also went 0-for-4 with four strike outs. ... Masahiro Tanaka topped out at 146km/h.  He also happened to hit that number in the 9th. ... The Eagles broke out of a 4-game losing streak.  A 5th loss would have tied a franchise high for consecutive losses to start the season (set in 2006 during Katsuya Nomura's first year).
