Notes

The Giants won their 2nd game in a row and are now 59-45-0 (1st place). ... The Bay Stars dropped their 3rd game in a row and are now 35-66-0 (6th place).

Fukuda (YOM) started his fourth game in a row and evened his record to 3-3 (2-2 as a starter). ... Atori (YOK) took the loss and is now 0-1 on the year.

Sakamoto's (YOM) lead-off homer in the first was originally ruled in play, but the call was overturned to a home run after umpires checked the replay and found that the ball did actually go over the fence.  This was also Sakamoto's third lead-off homer of the year.

Home runs
YOK: Murata (16)
YOM: Sakamoto (21), Ramirez (38), Ogasawara (25), E. Gonzalez (9)
