Notes

The Eagles dropped their fourth game in a row and their second straight against the Fighters. Rakuten has dropped their last two series in a row. ... The Fighters won their third game in a row and won three of their last four series. ... Tanaka's (RAK) 2-game winning streak comes to an end.  He drops to 4-3 on the year.  The 7 runs he gave up tied his career high set back in 2008. ... Tanimoto (HAM) got the win for the Fighters and evened out his record at 1-1. ... Marty Brown was thrown out of the game in the bottom of the 5th on a close play at home (Fighters were batting)..  It was Brown's 2nd ejection this year and 10th overall (tops for NPB managers). ... Yamasaki (RAK) was dropped down to the 6-hole for the first time this year.
