Notes

Orix: The Buffaloes extended their winning streak to four games. They also extended their winning streak against Nippon Ham to five. The last time they won five in a row against Nippon Ham from the start of a season was in 1972. Source: Sports Hochi 4/21/2017 … Takeda homered for the first time in his career (thirtieth game, fifty-ninth plate appearance). … Miyazaki hit a home run for the first time since 2013. This was the first two-homer game of his career.

Nippon Ham: The Fighters dropped their fifth straight game. This is the first time the team recorded two losing streak of five or more games before the end of April since 1949. Source: Sponichi 4/21/2017
