Rakuten: The Eagles scored more than 1 run for the first time since scoring 4 on 5/5 (vs Softbank). This was also their first 5-run game since 4/13 (vs Lotte). ... Yamasaki's RBI infield single in the first broke a streak of 66 consecutive innings without a timely hit.

      Rasner did start the game, but was pulled after facing three batters, after which Koyama entered the game.

      Not really sure why Rasner was taken out so early yet. I’m hearing it could be an injury to his ankle, not sure which though.

    Wow. I hope its not some sort of drama, and if an injury a minor one! I began watching right after that I guess, you watching this right now?
