Notes

Injuries: Kataoka was removed from the game (in the second inning on defense) after suffering from dizzy spells while on defense in the 1st inning (he made a nice play on Akada's ground up the middle).  The club told reporters that Kataoka may have suffered a slight concussion while making the play in the field (replays aren't conclusive, but it seems he may have hit his head on the ground as he made a throw to first).

Seibu: Egusa took the loss and is now 0-1. ... Nakamura now has twenty 2-homer games in his career.

Orix: C. Kaneko got the win and improved to 3-0. He's also 6-0 in his last 6 starts against the Lions. C. Kaneko has allowed 63 homers in his career, of which 8 have come off Nakamura's bat. ... Kishida saved his 15th game of the year. ... Tsuboi recorded his first hit in an Orix uniform in the 6th.
