Notes

Lotte: The Marines 3-game winning streak came to an end. ... Kobayashi made the first start of his Ichi-gun career and lost.  He is now 0-1.

Nippon Ham: The Fighters stopped a 3-game losing streak. ... Darvish won his second straight and improved to 10-2, making him the first to win 10 games in either league.  This was also his: 45th double-digit strikeout game; 20th start on 5 days of rest with a 13-6 record in those starts; 5th straight victory at Sapporo Dome; and 6th straight victory against Lotte (he's now owns a 12-4 lifetime record against the Marines). He topped out at 153km/h. ... H. Takeda saved his 19th game of the year. ... Nakata has now collected 10 RBI in the 12 games Darvish has started this season.  He's also driven in the game-winning run in 6 of those 12 starts.
