Notes

The Dragons have won two in a row. ... The Tigers have dropped two in a row.  They have also dropped 5 straight at Nagoya Dome. ... Kubo (HAN) picked up his third loss of the season and is now 3-3. ... Yoshimi (CHU) has won 5 straight since losing his first start of the season.  He is now 5-1 in 7 starts. ... S. Fujikawa (HAN) collected his first pro RBI in the 2nd. ... Ibata (CHU) was taken out of the starting line-up just before the start of the game.  It seems he started feeling pain in his back.
