Notes

The Swallows snapped a 9-game losing streak by recording their first Inter-league victory of the year.  They are now 18 games under 500. ... The Buffaloes' 2-game winning streak came to an end.  They are now 3 games under 500. ... Ishikawa (YAK) finally won his first game of the year in his 10th start of the year.  He is now 1-6. ... Katsuki (ORI) took the loss for the Buffaloes and is now 1-1.

It seems Baldiris (ORI) injured his left middle finger on a check swing during his at bat in the 8th.
