Notes

Mohombi performed two songs before throwing out the ceremonial first pitch.

Injuries: Imae (LOT) hurt his left hamstring while running out a grounder to short in the first inning and was later diagnosed with inflammation in his left biceps femoris muscle.

Lotte: The Marines lost their 2nd in a row. ... Karakawa took the loss and is now 9-6, including 1-2 in 4 starts against the Fighters.  This was also his 3rd complete game loss of his career (2nd this season).  Karakawa had a no-hitter going until he surrendered a one-out single to Ono in the bottom of the 6th.

Nippon Ham: The Fighters won their 2nd in a row. They are now a perfect 6-0 in 6 games at Tokyo Dome this year. ... M. Takeda stopped a personal 3-game losing streak (4 starts) and improved to 10-9, including 2-1 in 3 starts against the Marines.  This gives Takeda 3 consecutive seasons of 10 or more wins and the Fighters four starters with 10 or more victories. ... H. Takeda saved his 32nd game of the year.
