Notes

Aqua Timez performed Niji (Rainbow) live before the game. ... The Giants invited 1,000 earthquake / tsunami survivors to the game.  2 elementary school kids also threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Yakult: Shichijo won his Ichi-gun debut start.  He became the 7th player in franchise to record a win in his first Ichi-gun start.  He's also the first pitcher in franchise history to start and record his first career victory in his first start against the Giants. ... Lim saved his 16th game of the year.

Yomiuri: Greisinger took the loss and dropped to 1-3.  He's also 0-2 in 4 starts since his last victory on 5/15 (vs Hiroshima). ... Chono's 12-game hitting streak came to an end.
