Notes

Rakuten: Katayama tied a Pacific League record by allowing 10 runs on 10 hits in one inning.  He also became the 5th pitcher in franchise history to give up double-digit runs and the first to do so since Darrell Rasner on 5/5/2010 (for Japanese pitchers, first since Yasuhiro Ichiba on 4/15/2007).

Yakult: The Swallows sent 14 batters to the plate in the 4th inning.  It was also the first time they scored 10 runs in one inning since 6/14/2009.
