Notes

Nakajima (SEI) started toward Takamiya (SEI) on the mound after he was hit by a pitch in the 6th inning.  Both benches cleared and the umps issued a warning.

Orix: The Buffaloes have lost their last 3 games in a row. ... Kisanuki lost his 3rd straight start and dropped to 1-6.  He is also 0-6 in his last 7 starts against the Lions.

Seibu: The Lions have won their last 3 games in a row.  They have also strung together 4 straight games with double-digit hits. ... Kishi got the win and improved to 3-2.  Prior to this start and since his last victory on 5/28 (vs Yakult), Kishi was 0-1 in 4 starts.
