Kentaro Nishimura recorded his first save since September 6, 2007 (vs Chunichi at Nagoya Dome).

Shuichi Murata will donate 10,000 yen to his newborn baby healthcare support fund for every RBI he records this season.

Toshiya Sugiuchi is 8-0 in his first starts of the year.  He also became just the second player in franchise history to stop a team losing streak with their first start (after arriving from another team).  The other player: Osamu Kubota in 1966.

TV Ratings for the home opener (Nippon TV, Kanto Region, 19:00-20:43): 11.8%.

    Nice ratings. Now if only they could show the entire games and not cut out before they end.
