Notes

Chunichi: The Dragons are now guaranteed a losing record in June. ... Kawai got the loss and is now 3-2.  This was his first loss since his first start of the season 4/21 (vs Yakult). ... Araki stole his 300th career stolen base.

Yokohama: Gonzalez recorded his first victory in his first career Ichi-gun start.  He's the first foreign Yokohama pitcher to win his first start since Scott Mullen in 2004. ... Naito recorded his first career grand slam in the 3rd inning.  It was also the CL's first grand slam of the year.
