Seibu: Wakui was surprised when he found out that he needed only 102 pitches.  This was also Wakui's 20th career Inter-league victory; first victory against the Giants; and also his third straight complete game victory (and 31st of complete game victory of his career). ... Nakamura hit his 37th career Inter-league homer and 30th RBI.
