Notes

The Swallows took the Inter-league series, 3-1.

The Fighters are 3-2 over their last 5 games and are now 26-35-2 (6th place). ... The Swallows 5-game winning streak came to an end.  They are now 22-37-2 (5th place).

Sakakibara (HAM) won the first game of the season, and of his career.  He's now 1-0. ... Tateyama (YAK) took the loss and is now 3-5 on the year.

De La Cruz (YAK) topped out at 158km/h.

Itoi (HAM) became just the 10th player in NPB history to collect 4 doubles in one game.

Masui (HAM) was taken out of the game in after pitching just one inning -- it appears he developed pain in his back portion of his right shoulder.
