Notes

A base-running relay race, involving fans, took place before the game.  There were two teams, one led by Tadashi Matsumoto and the other by Kaname Yashiki.

HR: YOK: Ramirez (2, one on, off Houlton).  YOM: Tani (1, two on, off Alvarado).

YOK: Alvarado lost his second straight start and dropped to 1-4 in five starts. ... The Bay Stars lost a game for the first time since May 1.  In between losses, they went 3-0-2.  They have also dropped their last three game at Tokyo Dome.

YOM: Houlton got the win and is now 2-3 in six starts. ... Mathieson notched his first career NPB save. ... Tani's homer in the 5th inning was his first since May 2, 2010.
