Notes

The Swallows won their 5th straight game and are now 22-36-2 (5th place). ... The Fighters 2-game winning streak came to an end.  They are now 25-35-2 (6th place).

Muranaka (YAK) won his first game since 5/9 and improved to 4-5. ... M. Takeda's (HAM) personal 3-game winning streak came to an end with his first loss since 5/2.  He is now 4-5.

There were only 6202 fans in the stands for the game.  Perhaps explained by the fact that this was a make-up game played in fairly poor weather (rain).  The 6202 is also a season low for the entire NPB.
