Notes

The Fighters' three game winning streak comes to an end. ... The Lions snap a three game losing streak. ... Hoashi (SEI) recorded his fourth win of the season and third against the Nippon Ham Fighters.  In all, Hoashi has now thrown 24.2 shutout inning against the Fighters this year. ... Sato (SEI) hit his first home since since 7/27/2008 (vs Nippon Ham Fighters). ... Brown's (SEI) homer in the 6th was his first since 4/4. ... Masataka Nashida jokingly told reporters that the team still suffers from Hoashi allergies.

Mari Motohashi (curling) threw out the ceremonial first pitch.  It was also Kensuke Day at the Dome.
