Notes

Astronaut Satoshi Furukawa "threw out" the ceremonial first pitch from the International Space Station -- he pretended to throw a ball down to the stadium where a member of the Young Astronauts Club picked it up and threw it from the mound.

Hanshin: The Tigers stopped a 3-game losing streak. ... Kubo won his 3rd straight start and improved to 5-4.  He's now also 1-1 in 4 starts against Yokohama. ... Fujikawa saved his 28th game of the year. ... Murton's homer in the 5th was his first since 7/16. ... Brazell recorded his 100th career homer in the 8th inning.  He has now also hit double-digit homers in 4 straight seasons.

Yokohama: The Bay Stars are winless over their last 4 games (0-3-1). ... Shimizu lost his 2nd straight start and dropped to 2-4, including 1-1 in 3 starts against the Tigers.  He also became the 5th active player in the NPB to record 100 career losses.
