Notes

General: The benches cleared when Fujinami hit Hatakeyama with a pitch in the fifth inning. Yakult’s Balentien Hanshin coach Akihiro Yano were tossed because they went after each other (Balentien pushed Yano to the ground and the latter tried to return the favor with a kick). Hanshin’s Dolis and Mateo arrived a little late. Umpires gave both teams a warning. Source: Daily Sports 4/4/2017, Daily Sports 4/4/2017Sponichi 4/4/2017, Nikkan Sports 4/4/2017

Yakult: Manaka is planning to file a letter with the NPB asking why Fujinami was not ejected for throwing a dangerous pitch. Source: Sponichi 4/4/2017

Hanshin: Hojo’s hit in the second inning was his first in fourteen trips to the plate.
