Notes

JAY'ED was at the game (he's a Tigers' fan).  Hiyama uses one of his songs (Golden) as his intro music.

Yomiuri: Sawamura got the win and is now 4-5. ... Yamaguchi saves his 2nd game of the year. ... Ramirez has now driven in a run in four straight games.

Hanshin: Nomi took the loss and dropped to 3-6.  His 8-game winning streak against the Giants also came to an end.
