Notes

This was the first night game of the season at Tokyo Dome.

Yokohama: The Bay Stars are in the third place for the first time since 8/2/2007 (May onward). ... This was Hamilton's second start of the season and longest out of the season (he lasted only 2 innings during his first start).  Before his two starts, Hamilton was used out of the bullpen (9 relief appearances).

Yomiuri: The Giants are in last place for the first time since 5/13/1997. ... Ogasawara was presented with his Meikyukai blazer during a pre-game ceremony. ... Sawamura recorded his first pro hit and RBI in the 5th inning.
