Notes

The Tigers have won three games in a row. ... Kamei (YOM) told reporters that he felt relieved after hitting his first home run of the year. ... Every Giants' pitcher gave up at least one home run. ... The last time the Tigers hit 5 home runs in a game was back in 2004. ... K. Fujikawa's (HAN) 131st career save sets a new franchise record.
