Notes

Injuries: Ito (LOT) was hit in his left leg by a Yang (Yoh) broken bat in the 7th inning and was immediately replaced (he had to be carried off the field).  Nishimura told reporters that it was pretty bad because the bat sort of poked Ito in the leg (seems it broke skin).

Nippon Ham: The Fighters won their 2nd straight game. ... Ishii got the win in relief and improved to 3-0.  FWIW: he has now recorded all 3 wins on just 7 pitches.

Lotte: The Marines dropped their 2nd game in a row. ... Otani lost his 3rd straight game and dropped to 3-8, including 1-2 in 4 games (3 starts) against the Fighters.  He's also 0-4 in 5 starts at QVC Marine this season.
