Notes

The Hawks are 3-2 over their last 5 games and are now 7 games above 500. ... The Giants are 2-3 over their last 5 games and are now 11 games above 500. ... Sugiuchi (SOF) got the win and is now 6-0 over his last 7 starts.  He is 8-1 on the year. ... Gonzalez (YOM) dropped his third straight start and is now 3-6.

Hiroki Kokubo (SOF) was held out of the starting line-up due to neck pains.  Kokubo has been feeling discomfort in his neck and back off and on over the last week or so and the team decided to give him the night off.
