Notes

HR: RAK: Iwamura (1, none on, off Fujiwara).

Rakuten: Jimenez won his third straight start and is 5-7 in fifteen starts. ... Teppei collected his third modasho of the year (second in as many days) and his first four-hit game since September 12, 2010 (vs Orix); Fujita collected his modasho with the Eagles, second of the year, and the first four-hit game since he went 5-for-5 on July 1, 2009 (vs Yakult). ... Matsui extended his hitting streak to fourteen games. ... Iwamura's homer in the 8th was his first since returning to Japan last year (last NPB homer was October 10, 2006). ... The Eagles won their second straight.

Seibu: Makita left the game after a blister on his right middle finger popped -- it popped while throwing warm-up before the 6th inning. ... Matsunaga took the loss in relief and is 1-1 in thirty-four games. ... The Lions dropped their second game in a row.  They have also lost four in a row to the Eagles.
