Notes

Injury: Ono (HAM) left the game after Harper's (YOK) back-swing clipped him on the head (above the mask) in the 8th inning.  Not wanting to allow Harper to get on base (it was the third strike), he quickly threw off his mask and completed the throw to first before dropping the ground in pain.  Ono was bleeding from his head and was taken off the field on a stretcher.

Yokohama: The Bay Stars are now 0-3-1 since their last victory on 6/6 (vs Seibu).

Nippon Ham: The Fighters won their 6th in row. ... Nakata recorded his first homer out of the clean-up spot. ... Hoffpauir has homered in two straight games. ... Wolfe is now 7-0 in 8 games since losing his first start of the season.
