Notes

The Hawks have won five straight overall, and their last two against Lotte. They take over first place with a 21-14 record. ... The Marines suffer their fourth 2-game losing streak of the season.  Since their first 2-game losing streak (vs Orix Buffaloes, 4/18 and 4/20), the Marines are 3-8. ... Naruse (LOT) has now lost two straight after firing off four consecutive wins. Naruse struck out three batters in a row in the 3rd inning.  He pointed to the 2-run double he surrendered to Kawasaki in the 5th as the turning point in the game. ... Kim (LOT) has hit home runs in two consecutive games. ... Ogura (SOF) won his second straight start. ... Ortiz (LOT) and Kokubo (LOT) went back-to-back in much the same way during yesterday's game. ... In the 5th inning, Yamazaki (SOF) ran hard into Satozaki (LOT), jarring the ball loose.  Both players were temporarily stunned by the collision, but Yamazaki managed to touch home plate before Satozaki recovered the ball.  Said Yamazaki, "We hit each other so hard, I had a hard time breathing.  I knew I had to score."
