The Lions have now won three games in a row. ... This was Nakajima's (SEI) first game back since the 11th (a period of 13 games). ... Watanabe (LOT) told reporters that he wished the slider he threw to Nakamura (SEI), that went for a 2-run homer, broke further outside of the zone. ... Kishi (SEI) recorded his 5th victory of the year. That puts him in a two-way tie with Toshiya Sugiuchi (SOF) for the league lead.
