Notes

The Fighters are 3-2 over their last 5 games and are now 27-36-2 (6th place). ... The Buffaloes 3-game winning streak came to an end.  They are now 32-31-1 (4th place).  The Buffaloes were also shutout out for the fourth time this season.

Sakakibara (HAM) got the win and improved to 2-0.  This was Sakakibara's second outing in a row where he was called on to pitch in the third inning.  H. Takeda (HAM) recorded his first save of the year. ... C. Kaneko (ORI) dropped his second straight start and is not 4-6 on the year.

Tanaka (HAM) extended his hitting streak to 18 games.

Itokazu (HAM) was taken out of the game in the middle of the 3rd inning with pain in his right flank.  It seems he tweaked something when making a play on a bunt.

Home runs
HAM: Itoi (4)
