Notes

Yomiuri won the season series, 16-8.

The Giants won their 2nd game in a row and are now 78-63-1 (3rd place). ... The Bay Stars lost their 3rd game in a row and are now 47-94-1 (6th place).

Asai (YOM) got the win and is now 4-1.  Asai hasn't lost a game since 8/15 (vs Yokohama), a span of 6 starts and 2 relief appearances.  Kroon (YOM) notched his 25th save of the year. ... Tanaka (YOK) lost his second start in a row and is now 1-2 in 4 starts this season.

Tsutsugo (YOK) made his Ichi-gun debut tonight.

Chono (YOM) batted lead-off for the first time in his pro career tonight, meaning his lead-off homer in the first was also the first of his pro career.  He's also the first Yomiuri rookie to hit a lead-off homer since Tomohiro Nioka in 1999.

Home runs
YOM: Chono (19), Ramirez (48)
