Notes

The Lions won their 3rd straight game and are now 72-57-1 (1st place). ... The Fighters lost their 3rd game in a row and are now 63-62-3 (5th place).

K. Ishii (SEI) got the win and is now 9-4.  K. Ishii is now 3-0 in four starts since his last loss on 6/10 (vs Hanshin).  This was also his first start against the Fighters this season. ... Itokazu (HAM) took the loss and evened his record to 2-2 in 7 starts.  This was Itokazu's first loss since losing his first start of the season on 3/30 (vs Orix).

Itoi (HAM) was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the 5th after he made a couple of bad plays: he didn't properly run out a hit in the 4th, possibly costing him a double; he misplayed a fly ball in the 5th that led to a big inning.

Home runs
HAM: Koyano (13)
SEI: Sakata (8), Fernandez (7)
