Notes

The Bay Stars stopped a 2-game slide and are now 47-91-1 (6th place). ... The Tigers are 3-2 over their last 5 games and are now 74-61-3 (2nd place).

Ushida (YOK) got the win in relief and improved to 2-1.  Yamaguchi saved his 29th game of the year. ... Fujikawa (HAN) took the loss in relief and dropped to 3-4.

The Tigers held a ceremony for Akihiro Yano (HAN) at the end of the game.  He was presented with flowers from players like Murata (YOK), Uchikawa (YOK), Shimoyanagi (HAN), Kanemoto (HAN) and Arai (HAN), made a brief farewell speech, and was tossed into the air 7 times (if I counted correctly).

Home runs
YOK: Murata (25, 26)

      The Tigers were in a really tough situation to begin with. And dropping that one game against the Giants really slowed them down.

      The other thing to remember is that the Bay Stars had nothing to lost coming into this game. They were more or less expected to lose, but somehow managed to pull off a very big upset, and no less, against Fujikawa.

      This is a loss that stings.
