Notes

With Hichori Morimoto standing in the batter's box, SMAP's Masahiro Nakai threw out the ceremonial first pitch.  Morimoto actually made Nakai throw a total five pitches because none of them went for strikes -- the fifth pitch was near his head as well, but he swung to finish the ceremony.

Yomiuri: Sawamura became the fourteenth pitcher in NPB history, seventh in the Central League, to record four strikeouts in one inning (5th inning).  He also struck out six in a row at one point and notched his second career shutout victory and second career double-digit strikeout game.  Sawamura topped out at 152km/h; he was still hitting 150km/h in the 9th inning. ... The Giants are 4-0-1 over the last five games.

Yokohama: The Bay Stars are now 0-6 at home.  They also suffered their fifth shutout loss of the year. ... Kikuchi was ejected from the game for throwing a dangerous pitch in the 9th inning (he hit Terauchi in the head).
