The Marines snap a 2-game losing streak. ... This was Tomura's (RAK) first Ichi-gun start. ... Ono (LOT) left the game after only 5 innings because he started to feel some discomfort in his left buttock after the end of the 4th inning.
This was the first regular season NPB game played at Koriyama Kaiseizan Stadium since 1990. Pre-order tickets apparently sold out fairly quickly.
