Notes

Yakult: The Swallows dropped their second straight. ... Yuhei was a double away from becoming the sixty-second player in NPB history to record a cycle, the first since Michihiro Ogasawara on September 3, 2008.  Source: Daily Sports 4/12/2013  This was his first modasho of the year.  He also misjudged a fly ball hit by Sakamoto in the bottom of the 6th that kicked-off a five-run spurt by the Giants.  Source: Sanspo 4/12/2013

Yomiuri: The Giants stopped a two-game losing streak (0-2-1).  They are now 6-0-1 at Tokyo Dome this year. ... The offense set a new franchise record with thirty-two consecutive scoreless innings.  The streak was finally stopped in the 2nd inning. ... Lopez recorded his first modasho of the year.
