Yokoyama (HIR) notched his 5th save of the year. ... Atori (YOK) started and lost his second straight start of the year. Atori is now 0-2 this season.
Harper's (YOK) double in the 7th was originally ruled a home run, but the call was reversed after the umps reviewed the replays. And it seems Takao Obana was upset that the umps didn't provide a better explanation for why the call was reversed.
YOK: Shimozono (3)
