Notes

General: Balentien was honored by Stanley Palm (Minister of Economic Affairs & Tourism at Government of Curacao) during a ceremony before the game.  Source: Sports Hochi 9/24/2013 ... This was Fujimoto's last game.  A retirement ceremony was held after the game.  He was tossed into the air by teammates.  Source: Jiji Press 9/24/2013

Yomiuri:  The Giants' two-game winning streak came to an end. ... Utsumi's personal four-game winning streak ended with his first loss in six starts since his last loss on August 13 (vs Yokohama).  He is 3-1 in six starts against Yakult this season. ... Hashimoto recorded the first modasho of his career.

Yakult: The Swallows are 3-0-1 over their last four games against the Giants. ... Ishikawa is 2-0 in two starts since his last loss on September 11 (vs Hiroshima).  He is 3-2 in six starts against the Giants this year.  This was his second complete game of the year, and twenty-second of his career.  He came into the game with 1,991 innings pitched and hit 2,000 at the end of the game. ... Kawashima picked up his second modasho of the year. ... Iihara's hitting streak ended at seven games. ... Balentien was tossed after vehemently arguing a called third strike during his fourth trip to the plate (he apparently said two words that cannot be broadcast twice in a row).  This was the first ejection of his NPB career.  Source: Nikkan Sports 9/25/2013
