Notes

Ceremonial first pitch: Yuriko Koike (Governor of Tokyo)

Yokohama: Lopez blasted the 100th home run of his NPB career in the 6th inning.

Yakult: At thirty-seven years, Ishikawa became the oldest pitcher in franchise history to start an opening day game. He is the oldest in franchise history (and Central League history) to win an opening day game at thirty-seven years and two months. The previous record of thirty-three years and eight months was held by Hiromu Matsuoka. He also recorded his fifth opening day victory, first since 2012. The five opening day victories is good for third on the all-time list. Source: Nikkan Sports 3/31/2017, Daily Sports 4/1/2017, Nikkan Sports 4/1/2017
