Notes

Softball pitcher Yukiko Ueno threw out the ceremonial first pitch (softball, 115km/h fastball); Sakamoto was in the batter's box and grounded out to short.

Yomiuri: Sakamoto hit his second lead-off homer of the game this season. ... Koyama topped out at 147km/h in his first Ichi-gun outing of his career. ... As a member of the Yomiuri Giants, Ramirez has now batted fourth in 415 consecutive games.  That's good for a second place tie with Hideki Matsui on the franchise list.

Yokohama: The Bay Stars are the first team in the CL to lose 10 games this season.
