Notes

Yomiuri: Ramirez has now homered in three straight games. ... This was Greisinger's shortest non-injury related outing of his NPB career.  Last season, Greisinger left a game after pitching into the second (he didn't record any outs), but that was due to an injury (he was hit by a come-backer to the mound). He also topped out at 139km/h. ... Albaladejo topped out at 149km/h. ... Kaneto topped out at 149km/h.

Hiroshima: Alvarado was injured on a play in the 4th inning. ... Imamura notched his first career Ichi-gun victory a day before turning 20.
