Notes

The Eagles swept the series, 3-0.

The Eagles won their fourth straight game and are now 45-52-2 (6th place). ... The Marines lost their 7th game in a row and are now 50-47-2 (4th place).

Nagai (RAK) got the win and even his record out to 7-7 on the year.  This was also Nagai's third straight victory since a loss on 7/11 (vs Seibu).  Against the Marines this season, Nagai is now 2-2 with a 3.26 ERA in 4 starts. ... Corey (LOT) took the loss and dropped to 2-3.  Corey is now 2-2 in 5 games as a starter (and 0-1 in 6 relief appearances).

This was Yamamuro's (LOT) first pro appearance of his career.  Yamamura started the year as an Ikusei player and worked his way up to a spot on the regular roster on 7/30.

Nishimura (LOT) argued a safe / out play (he thought Imae was able to run out a grounder hit to short) in the third inning and was ejected from the game when he made contact with the first base ump.  This was Nishimura's first ejection as a manager.

Matoba (LOT) collected his first home run of the season and first in a Lotte uniform.  It was also Matoba's first home run since 2005.

Diamond Yukai (singer) sang the Japanese national anthem before the game.  Yukai apparently knows Yamasaki (YAK) and penned his batter walk-up music
