Notes

HR: CHU: Blanco (14, none on, off Hirano).

Chunichi: Sosa got the win in relief (his first NPB victory) and is 1-0 in twenty games. ... Iwase saved his twenty-first game of the year. ... Morino batted out of the five hole for the first time since September 7, 2011 (vs Yomiuri). ... The Dragons stopped a two game losing streak.  This was their third extra innings victory of the year.  They are 3-0-1 over their last four games against Orix.

Orix: Nakayama took the loss in relief and dropped to 1-4 in twelve games.  He is also 0-3 in nine games (six starts) since his last victory on April 18 (vs Softbank). ... The Buffaloes were handed their second extra inning loss of the season.  The loss guarantees a losing record during Inter-league play.
