Ariel José Martínez Camacho, who drove in a pair of runs for the Dragons, produced his sixth run in five games and also singled in four at-bats to keep his average at 500 and raise his RBI total to six.

In addition, the reigning champions SoftBank Falcons defeated the Orix Buffaloes 10-3, and are eagerly awaiting the departure of Cuban power hitters Alfredo Despaigne and Yurisbel Gracial to Japan on the 19th.
