He is 2-1 with a 1.35 ERA (1.10 WHIP) in three starts against the Fighters this season. ... Sanchez extended his hitting streak to five games. ... Goto recorded his fifteenth multi-hit game of the year. ... Pena homered for the first time since June 28 (thirty-nine plate appearances in between home runs).

Nippon Ham: The Fighters lost their second straight game. Their seven-game winning streak at Sapporo Dome came to an end. ... Mendoza's three-game winning streak ended with his first loss in nine games (eight starts). He is 0-1 with a 2.37 ERA (1.11 WHIP) in three starts against the Eagles this year. ... Yoh extended his hitting streak to five games and recorded his fourth multi-hit game of the season. ... K. Tanaka recorded his twenty-third multi-hit game of the year. ... Nishikawa homered for the first time since May 23 and recorded his twentieth multi-hit game of the season. ... With one out and a runner on first in the 6th, Nishikawa caught a fly ball and tossed it into the stands because he thought he caught the third out of the inning. The runner on first was awarded two bases. Play resumed with a runner on third and two out.
