Wada (CHU) almost had a three home run day, but his third home run was taken back after a replay showed it when foul.  Wada returned to the batter's box and hit a single. ... Ibata (CHU) was hit by a pitch in his back in the first inning and was removed from the game at the end of the first as a precaution. ... Suzuki (CHU) won his first game since 2007, a period of 953 days.
