Notes

Horror film character Sadako threw out the ceremonial first pitch.  Sadako also threw out the ceremonial first pitch before the Lotte-Nippon Ham game on April 25.

Yokohama: The Bay Stars suffered their seventh shutout of the year shutout of the year.  It is also the  fifth time in franchise history that they recorded seven shutouts in one month.

Chunichi: This was Iwata's first double-digit strikeout game of his career. ... Iwase notched his tenth save of the year.  He also becomes the third pitcher in NPB history to record ten or more saves nine seasons in a row. ... The Dragons recorded their seventh shutout victory of the year.  They are also 10-0-1 over their last eleven games against Yokohama (going back to last year).
