Notes

Ikuhiro Kiyota and Shota Ishimine helped collect donations before the game. ... Saburo made a brief speech during the opening ceremonies. ... QVC Japan president, Hayashi Sasaki, threw out the ceremonial first pitch. ... The game was delayed about 2 minutes due to an earthquake (3 on the Japanese earthquake scale, around 14:07, in bottom of the 4th).

Rakuten: Iwakuma turned 30 today.

Lotte: The Marines have not won an opening day game since 2004.
