Notes

Yakult: The Swallows have not lost a game since 4/15 (vs Yokohama) and are now 6-0-2. ... Kyuko is the 11th Swallow to record a win in his first outing and the first since Masato Nakazawa (3/30/2010 vs Chunichi). He told reporters he plans on sending the game ball to Ishinomaki, Miyagi. Kyuko spent time in Ishinomaki when he played for Industrial League Nippon Seishi Ishinomaki. ... K. Matsui is the first pitcher, in either league, to be tossed for throwing a dangerous pitch.
