Notes

Softbank: Players leaving early - Ortiz left the game after tweaking his left hamstring while trying to advance to second in the 2nd inning. And Kokubo was removed on defense in the 4th after he was hit by a pitch on his right wrist during his at bat in the 3rd inning. ... Sugiuchi has now tossed and dropped two back-to-back complete games.  His 14-game winning streak in May also came to an end (he suffered his first May loss since 5/28/2006). ... Cabrera broke a streak of 17 trips to the plate without a hit (span of 4 games).

Nippon Ham: Nakata has now hit homers in back-to-back games. He also extended his hitting streak to 7 games. ... Iiyama made a nice play on a ball that Koyano bobbled in the 7th -- Iiyama caught the ball after the ball bounced into and out of of Koyano's glove and then bounced of Koyano's right hand.
