Notes

The Giants won their second game in a row and are now 15 games above 500. ... The Buffaloes are 3-2 over their last 5 games and are now a game under 500. ... Kubo (YOM) got the win for the Giants and is now 4-0. ... C. Kaneko (ORI) took the loss for the Buffaloes and is now 4-5 on the year. He has now given up 7 runs (albeit unearned) in three starts this year. ... This was Huang's (YOM) first pro start of his career.  Seems the media also scrambled to get it televised in Taiwan. ... Kamei (YOM) recorded his first 3-hit game of the season.
