Notes

Yokohama … Miyazaki had a chance to stop Balentien’s grand slam in the third inning: one pitch before the grand slam, Balentien hit a pop fly in foul territory that Miyazaki should have been able to catch, but did not. … Yakult … Balentien blasted the third grand slam of his NPB career, first since May 14, 2013.
