Notes

Doala successfully turned a back flip (no twist) after the 7th inning.

Yakult: Ishikawa took the loss and dropped to 0-4 on the year. ... Miyamoto recorded his 2,500th total base with his single in the 2nd inning. ... Miyamoto committed a fielding error in the bottom of the 3rd inning that led to an unearned run (with a runner on second and one out, he let a ball get by him that put runners on first and third). ... Milledge was ejected from the game for arguing a called third strike in the 7th inning (or using harsh language) -- upon striking out, he returned to the dugout, only to return to the field and confront the home plate ump. ... The Swallows suffered their seventh shutout loss (second 1-0 game) of the year.

Chunichi: Yamai recorded his first victory of the year and stopped a personal four-game losing streak (going back to last year).  He is now 1-3. ... Asao saved his first game of the year. ... The Dragons recorded their eleventh shutout victory (fourth 1-0 game) of the season.
