The Fighters are 3-2 over their last 5 games and are now 40-39-2 (4th place). ... The Hawks are 2-3 over their last 5 games and are now 43-37-3 (3rd place).
Yagi (HAM) recorded his first victory of the year and is now 1-2. ... Settsu (SOF) took the loss for Softbank and is 3-2 on the year.
The Hawks apparently weren't too happy when Tsuboi (HAM) was allowed first base on an HBP call in the 7th inning. Seems the ump made the HBP call only after Tsuboi claimed he was hit.
SOF: Ortiz (20)
