Notes

General: Masato Nakamura threw out the ceremonial first pitch.  Source: Nikkan Sports 9/6/2013 ... The Eagles recorded their tenth sellout of the season and set a new Kleenex Stadium record with 22,316 in attendance.  The previous high for attendance was 21,700, set on October 1, 2006.  Source: Nikkan Sports 9/6/2013

Nippon Ham: The Fighters three game-winning streak against the Eagles came to an end. ... Otani made his eighth start of the year.  This was his first start/appearance against the Eagles.  He has not yet suffered a loss.  He topped out at 155km/h.  He took a batted ball off the inner area near his left knee in the 4th (off McGehee's bat).  CORRECTION - the batted ball hit off the base of his right pinky and then hit his left inner thigh.  Source: Nikkan Sports 9/6/2013, Sanspo 9/7/2013 ... Abreu's twenty-eight home runs is good for a first place tie in the PL with teammate Sho Nakata.

Rakuten: The Eagles are 2-0-1 since their last loss on September 1 (vs Softbank).  They are 5-0-1 over their last six games at Kleenex Stadium. ... Tanaka is 24-0 in thirty starts since his last loss on August 19, 2012 (vs Seibu).  He is 6-0 in six starts against the Fighters this year.  This was the thirty-seventh double-digit strikeout game and fifty-second complete game of his career. ... Matsui reached the outfield seats for the tenth time this season. ... Okajima extended his hitting streak to five games.
