Notes

Nippon Ham: Darvish improved to 9-2.  He also picked up his 6th double-digit strikeout game of the year (and 49th of his career). ... H. Takeda saved his 17th game of the year. ... Nakata is now 5-for-5 with 12 RBI with the bases loaded (and one sac fly).  Over his career, he's 7-for-10 with 15 RBI.

Softbank: Yamada's 3-game winning streak came to an end as he took the loss and is now 6-3 on the year. ... Egawa's homer the 5th was his first since 2007 and just the second of his career.  It also marked just the second time this season that a hitter took Darvish deep this season.
