Notes

Rakuten: Jimenez is now 0-3 in four starts against the Nippon Ham Fighters. ... Shima had a rough game: he took a hard hit during a close play at home plate in the bottom of the 4th; failed to advance a runner in the top of the 5th; and committed an error in the bottom of the 5th that ultimately set the stage for Kaneko's tie-breaking sac fly.  Shima was replaced by a pinch-hitter in the 6th inning -- he was banged up after the close play at home in the 4th.

Nippon Ham: Inaba collected a hit and is now fourteen away from 2,000. ... Sledge's homer in the 5th inning was his first hit in fifteen trips to the plate.  His last hit was also a home run.
