Notes

Video replay: the umps called for video replay on a ball Takaguchi hit down the left field line.  The call was originally fair, but was reversed to foul after the umps checked the video.

Rakuten: The Eagles have now been shutout 5 times this season.

Lotte: This was the Marines 5th shutout victory of the season. ... This was Karakawa's 4th shutout of his career (2nd this season) and 8th complete game of his career (7 of which went for victories). ... Okada made a nice diving grab on a ball hit by Hijirisawa in the 6th.
