Notes

Kinichi Hagimoto threw out the ceremonial first pitch. ... Yokohama Stadium shook a little from an earthquake that hit shortly after Guzman hit a 3-run homer in the 4th (around 14:07).

Chunichi: Nelson became the first foreigner to start an opening day game for Chunichi since Genji Kaku in 1986 and 1992.  He also topped out at 152/km/h.

Yokohama: This was Yamamoto's first career opening day start.
