The Hawks hit three Orix batters for the second game in a row. Both benches also cleared out (4th inning after Suzuki was hit), and were warned, for the second consecutive game. ... Tamura's (SOF) double in the 9th apparently hit the ball-boy's chair out in right. The ball-boy, thinking the ball went foul, picked up the ball. Interference was called on the play (the ball was ruled dead) and Tamura was awarded an automatic double.
