Chiba Lotte Marines

Yoshihisa Naruse and Yuki Karakawa are tied atop the PL with eight victories apiece.  The two could become the first pair of teammates to lead the league in victories in the first half since Shinya Okamoto and Kenshin Kawakami each won nine for Chunichi in 2005.  The last pair of teammates to do it in the PL were Daisuke Matsuzaka and Takashi Ishii for Seibu in 1999.  Source: Sponichi 7/6/2012
