Notes

Yomiuri: This was Sawamura's first pro career loss. ... Ogasawara continues to struggle at the plate -- he is now hitless in his last 17 trips to the plate. This was also the fourth time Ogasawara struck out 4 times in one game and the first time since 7/10/2009.

Yakult: The Swallows have now won 9 straight (1 tie mixed in). ... Tateyama has now tossed back-to-back complete game shutouts.  This was also his third double-digit strikeout game of his career.
