Notes

A portion of the lights at QVC Marine had to turned on in the 8th inning due to bad weather (reason: fan and player safety).

Softbank: Morifuku recorded the first save of his career on just one pitch. This was the 58th time (performed by 53 pitchers) in NPB history that a save was notched on just one pitch. This was also the first one-pitch save since 9/2/2010 (Hisashi Takeda vs Softbank) and first one-pitch save in the PL where the save was the pitcher's first career save since 4/23/1996 (Fumiya Nishiguchi vs Orix). ... Honda has now hit safely in 16 straight games.

Lotte: T. Ogino stole third for the first time this season (1st inning).
