Notes

Nippon Ham won the season series, 12-11-1.

The Fighters won their 2nd game in a row and are now 74-67-3 (3rd place). ... The Buffaloes are 1-4 over their last 5 games and are now 69-69-4 (5th place).

M. Takeda (HAM) got the win and is now 14-7.  This was his first start against the Buffaloes this year. ... Nakayama (ORI) took the loss and is 3-3.  Against the Fighters this year, Nakayama is now 1-1 with a 2.41 ERA over 4 games (3 starts, 1 relief appearance).

Nakata (HAM) was in an 0-for-22 drought before picking up the RBI double in the second inning.

This was most likely Shiozaki's (ORI) last Ichi-gun at bat of his career -- he recently announced he was retiring.  His teammates tossed him up in the air after the game and Akinobu Okada signed the game ball and gave it to Shiozaki.

Home runs
None.
