Notes

Orix: T-Okada hit his first homer in 7 games. ... Figaro became just the second pitcher in the NPB to hit a homer this season (the other was Shun Tono of Yomiuri on 5/3 vs Hanshin). He is also the first Buffalo pitcher to hit a homer since Jeremy Powell 0n 5/11/2005; and his homer is the 6th by a pitcher during Inter-league play (all PL pitchers).

Yokohama: Murata picked up his third 4-hit game of his career (and first since 4/16/2008).

    Figaro is the second pitcher to hit a home-run this year (Tohno being the other), am I right or is there another ?
