The Swallows won their 9th game in a row last behind Yoshinori Sato.  For the Swallows, it's their first 9-game winning streak since 8/2008.  The offense also pulled together its 6th consecutive double-digit hit game (first since 5/2004).

For Yoshinori, he hit 158km/h on the radar gun in his third straight start and tied his career high of 9 strikeouts in one game.  Yoshinori's parents were also in town to catch the game -- they came in from Osaka after watching their other son Takanori (Sendai Ikuei) play in a Koshien game.
