Notes

Suzuko Mimori threw out the ceremonial first pitch.  Mimori also conducted a live concert before the game with Sora Tokui, Mikoi Sasaki, and Izumi Kitta. ... The lights at Yokohama Stadium were turned on (50% brightness) partway through the 6th inning due to poor weather (at the umpiring crew's request).

Yomiuri: The Giants scored 5 runs in one inning for the first time since 9/19/2010 (vs Hanshin). ... Nishimura topped out at 151km/h. ... Ogasawara is now 2 hits away from 2,000. ... Ramirez batted 4th for the 416th consecutive game.  That's good for first on the franchise list and 2nd on the all-time list (behind Tomoaki Kanemoto's 880 games batting fourth).

Yokohama: This marked the 11th time Murata has hit homers in back-to-back at bats in his career and first since 8/15/2010 (vs Yomiuri).
