The Tigers have lost two in a row and are now 9-9. ... This was Sledge's (YOK) second two home run game (the other came on the 14th against Chunichi) this month. ... Jojima (HAN) failed to make it four consecutive Saturdays with a home run. ...The Bay Stars held a mini-ceremony before the game to acknowledge Miura's 2,000th strikeout. Miura achieved the feat last year on 10/3 against the Chunichi Dragons and became just the 19th pitcher to do.
