Notes

Hirotada Ototake threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Seibu: This was Makita's first career victory; he is also the first rookie pitchers from the 2010 draft class to toss a complete game shutout. ... Kuriyama's homer in the 3rd was the teams 8,000th. The Lions are just the second NBP club to record 8,000 homers behind the Yomiuri Giants.

Rakuten: Shima was taken out of the game after his collision with Oshima at home plate in the 3rd inning. ... Tanaka's 3-game winning streak at Kleenex Stadium came to an end.
