Notes

The Fighters have lost two in a row.  The have also lost the first game of the series 9 consecutive times this year. ... The Buffaloes have won two in a row. ... Masataka Nashida jokingly told reporters that he was worried Masui (HAM) might get blown away by the wind (Masui stands at 181cm and weighs just 67kg). ... Tanaka (HAM) drove in his first run since 4/13. ... This was Wolfe's (HAM) second walk-off loss this year. ... This was Akada's first walk-off hit since 4/2008.
