Notes

The Buffaloes stopped a 2-game slide and are now 5 games under 500. ... The Carp dropped their second game in a row and are now 10 games under 500. ... Kondo (ORI) picked up his first win since his first start of the year (3/26 vs Softbank).  He is now 2-4. ... T. Aoki (HIR) dropped his second game in a row and falls to 1-3 on the year. ... Cabrera (ORI) hurt his left leg while running the bases in the bottom of the third inning -- he was trying to score from second on a single to right by Baldiris (ORI).  Cabrera was replaced by LaRocca (ORI) in the top of the fourth. ... Akada (ORI) became the 13th PL player to hit homers from both sides of the plate. ... The Carp had a total seven righties in the line-up (six of them hitting in row behind Amaya).  Interestingly enough, the reason why they had seven righties in the line-up was because they guessed the wrong starting pitcher -- it was a toss-up between Yamamoto (lefty) and Kondo (righty) and Kondo ended up as the starter.
