Notes

Singer Yuki Saito sang the national anthem before the game.

Softbank: Nakamura collected his first pro hit, RBI, stolen base, and modasho. ... The Hawks have won the last 8 straight games Matsuda has hit home runs in (going back to 9/5/2010 vs Orix). ... Wada has now won his last 4 starts at Yahoo Dome (going back to 9/8/2010 vs Rakuten).
