Notes

Horse jockey Shinobu Murakami threw out the ceremonial first pitch.

Orix: Igawa recorded his first NPB victory since October 16, 2006 (vs Yakult) and is 1-2 in four starts. ... Hirano saved his first game of the year (and fifth of his career). ... The Buffaloes stopped a four-game losing streak.

Rakuten: Mima lost his second straight start and is 5-4 in eleven games (ten starts).  He had a no-hitter going until he gave up a lead-off infield single to Nonaka in the top of the 7th. ... Matsui's hitting streak came to an end at sixteen games. ... The Eagles' lone run: Hijirisawa walked with one out, advanced to third on a bad pick-off throw, and scored on a wild pitch in the bottom of he 6th.
