Notes

Seibu: The Lions won their second straight. ... Kikuchi made his second Ichi-gun start of his career and finally picked up his first victory.  He is now 1-0. ... This was Nakajima's 1,000th career game. ... Nakamura has now homered in three straight games (accompished 9 times in his career).  He has now also hit 2 homers in a game 21 times in his career.

Orix: The Buffaloes have now dropped two in a row. ... Kisanuki lost his second straight start and is now 1-5.  Kisanuki hasn't had much luck against Seibu: since last season, he's 0-5 in 6 starts.  Incidentally, his one victory this year came against a CL team during Inter-league play.  That means Kisanuki has not beaten a PL team since 9/8/2010 (vs Lotte).
