Notes

The Eagles 4-game winning streak came to an end.  They also suffered their third walk-off loss of the season. ... This was the Lions first walk-off win of the season. ... Fujita (SEI) was the winning pitcher on record and is now 2-2 on the year. ... Matsumoto (RAK) loses his first game of the season and is now 0-1. ... Prior to this start, Nagai (RAK) had thrown 120+ pitches per start. ... The Lions recorded their first non-home run timely hit since the 5th inning of their game against the Chiba Lotte Marines on 4/29 -- a span of 45 innings. ... Fielding coach / base-running coach Mineo Fukuhara (RAK) wasn't happy with Kusano's (RAK) error and told reporters that Kusano wasn't taking things seriously enough.

Sponichi Day continued at the Dome with Haru (actress / model) throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.  And Sponichi headlines an article "Wakui melts at the sight of the model."
