Notes

Seibu: Wakui recorded his first career victory against Darvish.  This was also Wakui's third straight opening day victory.

Nippon Ham: Fighters' players and coaches spent time giving fans high fives before today's game. ... Darvish topped out at 154km/h.  He also gave up a career high 7 runs. ... Kaneko has now hit the team's first homer of the season 3 years straight.

    Ah, real baseball at last. The offseason seemed to go on forever this year. It feels like ages since Okada decided to end Nippon Ham’s season by selecting Lotte for the Climax Series.

    Go Ham!!!

    Fire Nashida!!!
