Notes

Seibu: The Lions won their 2nd game in a row.  They also snapped a 10-game losing streak at QVC Marine Field. ... Kishi got the win (the 50th of his career) and is now 4-5.  He picked up his first victory in 5 starts, a span in which he went 0-3. Kishi apparently fell in love with his breaking pitches in the 3rd inning (when he struggled and gave up 2 runs) and decided to scale back beginning in the 4th inning. ... Makita saved his 11th game of the year.

Lotte: The Marines are winless over their last 3 games (0-2-1). ... S. Watanabe took the loss and dropped to 5-6, including 1-2 in 3 starts against the Lions.  His personal 2-game winning streak (2-0 in 4 starts since a loss on 7/10) also came to an end.
