Notes

General: Rugby players Takuro Miuchi and Radike Samo participated in the ceremonial first pitch -- Miuchi threw the ball, Samo caught it. Nikkan Sports 4/25/2014

Rakuten: The Eagles have dropped their last five against the Buffaloes (going back to last season).  This was their first shutout loss of the year. ... Norimoto's personal three-game winning streak against the Buffaloes came to an end.

Orix: The Buffaloes recorded their fourth shutout win of the season . ... Kaneko retired the first fourteen hitters in a row.  He notched the 1,000th strikeout of his career in the 5th (Masuda was the victim).  He leads the Pacific League with fifty-seven strikeouts.  This was his second shutout of the year. ... T. Okada picked up his first modasho since July 9, 2013; K. Hirano his third modasho of the year; Adachi his second.
