Notes

The Dragons won their 5th straight game and are now 68-55-2 (2nd place). ... The Giants are 1-3-1 over their last 5 games and are now 66-55-1 (3rd place).  They have now lost 8 straight at Nagoya Dome, a new franchise record.

M. Yamamoto (CHU) got the win and is now 4-0 in 5 starts this season. ... Gonzalez (YOM) took the loss and dropped to 4-10.  He's now also 0-5 in 6 starts against the Dragons.

The benches cleared temporarily in the bottom of the 5th when Gonzalez (YOM) threw two brushback inside to Wada (CHU) for balls three and four.  Wada apparently thought the pitches were too close for comfort.
