The Tigers won two in a row and are now 5 games above 500. This is their first consecutive game winning streak during Inter-league play. ... The Marines dropped their second game in a row and are now 10 games above 500. This was also their first shutout loss of the season. ... Standridge (HAN) got the win and improved to 2-1 on the year. ... Ono (LOT) suffered his first loss of the year and is now 3-1. ... Toritani (HAN) was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the fourth inning due to a finger injury. It doesn't appear to be a serious injury since batting coach Yutaka Wada told reporters that he would be back in the line-up again tomorrow.
Ono's (LOT) right shoulder was hit by a come-backer to the mound, off Brazell's (HAN) bat, in the first. Ono was immediately taken out of the game and replaced by Kawagoe (LOT).
