Notes

Ono (LOT) got the win in relief and is now 5-4 on the year.  H. Kobayashi saved his 28th game of the year. ... Yamamura took the loss in relief and dropped to 0-2.

Brown (RAK) apparently wasn't happy with the safe call when Nishioka (LOT) slid across home in the 12th inning and came out of the dugout to argue the call.

Shima (RAK) suffered a contusion to his right upper arm on the above play and was taken out of the game.  Shima did not go to the hospital and instead just got the arm iced.
