Notes

The Eagles won their 2nd straight game and are now 59-73-3 (6th place). ... The Marines lost their 2nd game in a row and are now 69-65-2 (3rd place tie).

Koyama (RAK) got the win in relief and is now 5-4 this season. ... H. Kobayashi (LOT) blew a save and took the loss.  He is now 3-3.

Hijirisawa's (RAK) lead-off homer came on the very first pitch he saw.  Seems he also hit a lead-off homer on the first pitch he saw back in his college days.

The Eagles extended their winning streak over the Marines at Kleenex Stadium to 16.

Nakamura (RAK) was taken out of the game, and replaced by pinch-runner Miyade, after he hurt his right hamstring while running the bases in the 2nd inning.

Home runs
LOT: Kiyota (2)
RAK: Hijirisawa (4), Makida (3), Takasu (5)
