Notes

General: At four hours and forty-eight minutes, this game set the record for the longest nine-inning Inter-league game in NPB history.  The previous record of four hours and forty-three minutes was set on June 3, 2009 between Chunichi and Orix.  The longest Inter-league game, including extra-innings, lasted five hours and fifty-three minutes, set by Yokohama and Nippon Ham on June 14, 2007. Sponichi 6/18/2014

Orix: The Buffaloes stopped a seven-game slide (0-7-1) against the Giants. ... Y. Hirano leads both leagues with twenty-one saves. ... Pena leads the Pacific League with seventeen home runs.

Yomiuri: The Giants' seven-game winning streak came to an end. ... Kubo allowed the game-winning run to score when he loaded the bases with two out and hit Pena in the 7th. ... Sakamoto recorded his seventh modasho of the year. ... Chono picked up his fourth modasho of the season.  He safely reached base in his sixteenth straight game.
