...Hitoki Iwase saved his 252nd career game last night.  That puts him in a 2nd place tie behind Shingo Takatsu's 286.

...The Donoue brother both played in last night's game, giving the Dragons their first brother combo in the line-up since the Nimura brothers played in the same game on 10/7/1990 (vs Yomiuri).  Naomichi Donoue started at second and batted seventh while Takehiro Donoue entered the game as a pinch-hitting in the 7th.

...Tony Blanco, Masahiko Morino, and Kazuhiro Wada all hit homers last night.  It was the third time the trio went yard in one game and the first time since 7/28/2009 (vs Yomiuri).
