Recap

Hayato Terahara held the Chunichi Dragons to just 1 run on 3 hits over 7 innings of work.  After allowing 2-out single to Masahiko Morino, Terahara retired 10 straight batters before giving up a lead-off double to Kazuhiro Wada in the 5th.  One out later, Wada came around to score on Kei Nomoto's sac fly to right -- the only real blemish Terahara suffered during the game.

Edward Valdez also pitched well, holding the Bay Stars to just 3 hits over 4 innings of work (he likely could have pitched more, but was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the 5th inning with a runner on second and 2 out).  Unfortunately, he also gave up 2 runs:

3rd inning, Takehiro Ishikawa led off with walk, advanced to second on a sac bunt, and scored on Seiichi Uchikawa's single into left.

4th inning, the first batter of the inning, Jose Catillo, got hit by a pitch, advanced to second on a sac bunt, moved to third on a ground out to second, and scored on a double by Terahara.
