Notes

Yokohama: The Bay Stars lost their 4th straight game at Mazda Stadium (going back to 8/21/2010).

Hiroshima: The Carp have now won 10 straight against the Bay Stars (going back to their first victory on 8/21/2010). ... Fukui told fans during his hero interview that he wanted to give the game ball to his deceased brother.  This was Fukui's first start since his brother's death on 4/20. ... Maru made a nice catch in center while crashing into the wall in the 6th inning.
