Shinnosuke Abe (YOM) took a foul ball of his left leg while catching in the 6th inning -- the foul ball came off Jun Hirose's (HIR) bat and hit Abe in the left thigh.  Abe stayed in the game after that, but was replaced in the 9th on defense.

Tatsunori Hara told reporters that while he didn't want to take Abe out of the game, he was in no condition to play.

Abe missed 5 games earlier this month when a similar incident occurred back on 13th (he took a foul ball of his right calf).
