Notes

The Lions swept the series, 3-0.  According to Sponichi, this is the first time the Hawks were swept by the Lions in a three game series since they changed their team name from Daiei in 2005.

The Lions won their third game in a row and are now 42-26-0 (1st place). ... The Hawks dropped their third game in a row and are now 37-30-2 (3rd place).

Takekuma (SEI) picks up his first save of the season (and of his career).  Sikorski (SEI) racks up save number 21. ... Sugiuchi (SOF) took the loss and is now 9-3 on the year.  This was Sugiuchi's shortest outing since he lasted only 4.1 innings on 8/16/2007 vs Nippon Ham.

Yamazaki (SOF) was taken out of the game in the 2nd inning after hitting a single to center with pain in his left knee.
