Notes

HR: HAM: Hoffpauir (9, bases loaded, off Mathis).

Lotte: The Marines dropped their fourth straight game. ... Mathis took the loss and is 0-2 in two starts. ... Suzuki celebrated his twenty-third birthday.

Nippon Ham: The Fighters won their second straight.  They are also 7-0-3 over their last ten games at Sapporo Dome. ... Tadano got the win and is 5-3 in fourteen games (thirteen starts).  He also stopped a personal three-game losing streak with his first win in seven games since his last victory on June 18 (vs Yokohama). ... H. Takeda saved his nineteenth game of the year. ... Itoi recorded his eighth modasho of the year. ... Tanaka extended his hitting streak to thirteen games. ... Hoffpauir recorded the second NPB grand slam of his career in the 3rd.  His other grand slam also came against Lotte (April 17, 2011). ... Koyano committed a throwing error in the top of the 6th that led to three unearned runs.  A few plays later, in the same inning, he was removed from the game with tightness in his lower back.

    I will be thoroughly impressed if the Marines come back and tie/win this game. Something tells me they will, but gonna have to see the rest of the game to find out! Koyano’s error certainly helped… Ogino gave away the game last night, let Koyano do the Marines a favor.

    BTW, Mathis blows. Why does the guy rush every pitch? I mean, every pitch?

    1. Nathan

      Am I the only one that thought Mathis was rushing it a bit? He needed to calm down, but just couldn’t and wanted to get out of the inning quickly w/o focusing on the situation. I personally think that he’s not used to hitters fouling off pitches and all the small-ball he’s seeing right now.

      Steve, do you think the Hawks can make a push now or what ;)
