Notes

General: The game drew 45,524 fans and set a new record for a Yomiuri game at Tokyo Dome since attendance figures became public in 2005. Source: Nikkan Sports 3/27/2015

Yokohama: Sekine's home run in the 9th was the first of his career. He became the eighth player in Central League history to record a pinch-hit home run in an opening day game. At nineteen, he also became the younger player in Central League history to hit a home run on opening day. Source: Sponichi 3/27/2015, Nikkan Sports 3/27/2015 ... Kuramoto became the first rookie in franchise history to make the opening day starting line-up at short since Yoshio Noguchi in 1971. Source: Sponichi 3/27/2015

Yomiuri: Sugano became the fourth player in franchise history to win two or more consecutive opening day starts since 1950. The other three: Takehiko Bessho (1955, 1956), Tsuneo Horiuchi (1977, 1978), Masaki Saito (1993-1996). Source: Sponichi 3/28/2015 ... Sawamura notched the first save of his professional career. ... For the first time in franchise history, the Giants fielded a starting line-up with two players that will be turning forty later in the year (Takahashi will be turning forty on April 3, Ibata will be turning forty on May 12).
