Wada (SOF) got the win and is now 4-0 in 5 starts since his last loss on 6/19 (vs Seibu). Wada is now 13-4 on the year. He is also 3-0 in 3 starts against the Eagles this season. Mahara (SOF) notched his 21st save of the year. ... Hasebe (RAK) took the loss and dropped to 3-2 on the year. This was Hasebe's first start against Softbank this year.

Mahara's (SOF) saved his 150th game in his 267th game.  That breaks the previous Japanese player speed-record set by Masahide Kobayashi when he saved his 150th game in his 312th game.
