Notes

Doala successfully turned a back-flip after the 7th inning (that makes 2 in his last 5 games).

Yokohama: The Bay Stars snapped a 4-game losing streak. ... Shimizu got the win and evened his record to 2-2.  He is now 2-0 in his last 3 starts. ... Yamaguchi saved his 20th game of the year.

Chunichi: Yoshimi's 4-game losing streak came to an end as he dropped this 3rd start of the year.  He is now 8-3.  Yoshimi's 11-game winning streak against the Bay Stars also came to an end (he was 11-0 in 15 starts and 2 relief appearances since 4/20/2008).  This was also his 2nd career complete game loss.
