Notes

Ibata's (CHU) double in the second was his first hit in 19 trips to the plate. ... Yoshimi (CHU) won his first game in his third start of the year. ... If Chono (YOM) didn't try to throw the ball straight to home in the 5th inning, two runs probably don't score on Blanco's (CHU) single to center.  Chono was promptly removed when Gonzalez was relieved by Fukuda.
