Notes

The Eagles invited 162 earthquake / tsunami survivors from Onagawa and Ishinomaki.  After the game four Eagles players, including Shima, spent some time with the guests.

Lotte: The Marines recorded their 30th loss of the season. ... S. Watanabe took the loss and dropped to 3-4. ... Ishimine extended his hitting streak to 7 games.

Rakuten: Kawagishi got the win in relief and evened his record to 1-1. ... The Eagles made a mistake when filling out the line-up card: Teppei was supposed to start in right and Hijirisawa in center.
