Notes

Rakuten: The Eagles dropped their 3rd in a row. ... Tanaka took the loss and is now 15-5, including 1-2 in 3 starts against the Lions.  His personal 5-game winning streak also came to an end.  This was also his 8th complete game loss of his career (2nd of the season) and his 24 double-digit strikeout game of his career (7th of the season).  His 206 strikeouts, so far this season, set a new franchise record.

Seibu: The Lions are now 3-0-1 since their last loss on 9/13. ... Kishi won his 2nd straight start and is now 6-7.  He also stopped a personal 3-game losing streak at Seibu Dome (span of 4 starts). ... Makita saved his 14th game of the year.
