...Hisashi Iwakuma won his start against the Chiba Lotte Marines yesterday, 3-0.  It was Iwakuma's first victory since 5/1 (vs Orix).  He had gone 0-2 over 6 starts between the wins.

Iwakuma is now also 9-0 at Chiba Marine Stadium (since 9/2005).

...Motohiro Shima batted out of the 2-hole for the second time this season and did exactly what he was expected to do: despite striking out twice, he went 2-for-5 with 2 RBI.
