...6-16-1 (6th place): Rough week for the Fighters as they get swept by the Chiba Lotte Marines, 3-0, and then almost get swept by the Seibu Lions.  Hichori Morimoto was also activated this past week, a move that ultimately led to Sho Nakata's demotion on Monday.

...Atsunori Inaba was the savior in the lone game the Fighters won this past week.  His grand slam in the 5th allowed Yu Darvish to win his third game of the season.  A picture of Inaba hugging Darvish after his slam was seen in almost every story for the game.  Inaba finished the week, 4-for-17 (.235) with 2 HR and 6 RBI.
