Notes

The Tigers dropped their third game in a row. ... Jojima's (HAN) RBI in the third was his first RBI since he hit a home run on 4/3 against the Chunichi Dragons. ... Murton (HAN) has now reached base in all 12 games since the start of the season. ... The Swallows collected at least one hit in every inning except the 5th. ... Lim (YAK) topped out at 152km/h. ... Miyamoto (YAK) recorded his 350th sac hit.  He is only the third player in NPB history to reach that milestone.
