Notes

The Lions have won two games in a row. ... Nakamura's (SEI) triple in the first was lost in the ceiling at Seibu Dome by Ortiz (SOF).  Nakamura has now driven in at least one run in each of his last 7 games. ... In addition to losing the ball in the ceiling in the first, Ortiz (SOF) also committed two errors in the game, both coming in the 8th (a throwing error and a fielding error). ... Kawasaki (SOF) extends his hitting streak to 18 games. ... Brown's (SEI) caught stealing in the 6th wasn't technically a caught stealing.  He apparently thought the inning was over when Takayama (SEI) struck out, prompting him to head toward the dugout.  The umps called him out for abandoning the play.
