Notes

The Swallows finally manage to snap a 5-game losing streak and climb out of the cellar into 5th place. ... The Bay Stars' 3-game winning streak comes to an end. ... Nakazawa (YAK) is now 2-0 against the Bay Stars this year. ... Fujimoto (YAK) was ejected from the game in the 5th after arguing his out call out at home -- with runners on second and third and one out, Miyamoto hit a grounder to first; Fujimoto, the runner at third, broke for home and was called out at home.  The Swallows will be filing a report with the commissioner's office that includes footage of Fujimoto sliding in safely.

It was Aoki Day at the stadium.
