Notes

Both the Eagles and Marines played out to a tie for the first time this year (first for the Marines since 6/9/2010 and first for the Eagles since 8/28/2010).  This was also the second time a game in the NPB ended in a tie after 12 innings.

Rakuten: The Eagles offense collected double-digit hits for just the third time this season. ... Tanaka carried a no-hitter into the 7th (T. Ogino broke it up with a 1-out single to center).  He also racked up double-digit strikeouts for the 18th time of his career. ... Abe recorded his first pro hit of his career.

Lotte: This was Naruse's first night game of the year (it was also the first night game at QVC Marine this year).

    Can’t really say enough about Tanaka here. 10 innings, 11 strikeouts! Anyone think he is MLB material?

      I think he’d actually do alright in the US. But similar to Matsuzaka, I think he might have some difficulties adjusting to the different training styles (Japan vs US).

      For those curious, his pitch count averages over the years:

      2011: 607 (5 G); average – 121.4; high – 138; low – 110
      2010: 2,301 (20 G); average – 115.1; high – 134; low – 85
      2009: 2,809 (25 G); average – 112.4; high – 142; low – 11 (relief), 86
      2008: 2,813 (25 G); average – 112.5; high – 149; low – 39 (relief), 63
      2007: 3,109 (28 G); average – 111.0; high – 150; low – 57
