Lee's double to left-center led Orix to a 5-3 victory over the Seibu Lions.

The Lions went ahead 3-1 through the second inning on RBI hits by Esteban German, Hiroyuki Nakajima, and Yasuyuki Kataoka, but Aarom Baldiris' two-run homer tied it 3-3 in the third at Seibu Dome.

Satoshi Komatsu (1-0), the second pitcher to take the mound for Orix, pitched 4⅓ scoreless innings to win his first decision in two years. Seibu reliever Tatsuya Oishi (0-1) took the loss.

Mamoru Kishida had a 1-2-3 ninth for his 12th save. Orix got its first win since beating the Yokohama BayStars on June 14. Seibu was denied its third win in a row.
