Notes

Comedian Kinichi Hagimoto participated in the ceremonial first pitch -- he was the catcher while Hiratsuka mayor Katsuhiro Ochiai stood in the batter's box and Lemongas president Kinya Akatsu threw the pitch.

Injuries: Yoshimi left the game early.  TV broadcasters thought it might be an injury (perhaps a fingernail), but Yoshimi denied any injury after the game.

Chunichi: The Dragons won their 3rd straight game.  The run Yoshimi allowed in the bottom of the 5th was the first run allowed by the Dragons in 30 innings. ... Yoshimi got the win and improved to 9-3. ... Iwase saved his 18th game of the year. ... Oshima recorded his first career homer in the 5th.

Yokohama: Shimizu dropped to 2-3 as his personal 2-game winning streak came to an end.
