Notes

The Swallows are 2-2-1 over their last 5 games and are 18 games under 500. ... The Hawks 2-game winning streak came to an end.  They are now 7 games over 500. ... R. Kawashima (YAK) recorded his first win of the season and is 1-0.  Matsuoka (YAK) recorded his first save of the year (and of his career). ... Sugiuchi's (SOF) personal 6-game winning streak came to an end with just his second loss of the season (the first came on 4/2 against the Rakuten Eagles).  He is now 8-2.

Kokubo (SOF) apparently injured his shoulder during his first at bat and was taken out of the game after his second at bat.  It seems the Hawks also decided that he will be coming off the active roster tomorrow.
