Tatsuya Ozeki drove in the winning run with a single in the bottom of the ninth inning Monday to lift the Seibu Lions to a 2-1 walkoff victory over the Chiba Lotte Marines.

Jose Fernandez gave the Lions a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third with his second homer of the season, a two-out solo homer off Lotte starter Dan Serafini. But the Marines tied the game in the top of the ninth on a two-out pinch-hit single by Tsuyoshi Nishioka.
