Notes

The scoreboard displayed Orix as Hankyu yesterday (as part of their Legend of Bs festivities), but that was reversed back to Orix today.

Orix: Nishi is now 4-0 in 4 starts this season.  The last Orix pitcher to win their first four starts of the season was Shigetoshi Hasegawa in 1993. ... It was 70 homerless trips to the plate for T-Okada.
