Lotte: The Marines 2-game winning streak came to an end. ... A. Kobayashi started and lost his second straight game and is now 0-2. ... M. Watanabe's inside-the-park homer in the 3rd began as a fly ball to left that scooted past Nakata (HAM) and rolled all the way to the wall (Itoi tracked it down and threw it back in).
