Notes

Orix: There was a mix-up during a pitching change in the 7th - the stadium announced M. Kobayashi but Yoshino arrived in the relief car. Realizing the mistake, Yoshino quickly disappeared into the dugout.  Chief pitching coach Osamu Fukuma later admitted to sending the wrong pitcher.

Lotte: The Marines have now won 6 in a row at QVC Marine Field. ... This was Karakawa's 5th career double-digit strikeout game. ... The homer by Saburo in the third meant the Saburo Burgers on sale at the Lotteria at QVC Marine Field dropped in price from 580 yen to 360 yen.
