Notes

The Fighters have won three in a row for the first time this season. ... The Lions have lost three in a row (for the first time this year).  Their loss puts them in third place (a win would have put them in a first place tie with the Softbank Hawks). ... Darvish (HAM) picks up his fourth win of the season and his first complete game shutout of the year.  Darvish recorded 16 ground ball outs. ... Both Shinji Takahashi (HAM) and Tomohiro Nioka (HAM) were held out of the starting line-up due to their recent struggles.

Ryo Tamura (part of London Boots 1 and 2) threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
