Yoshihiro Doi pitched his fourth complete game of the season and Hitoshi Taneda went 4-for-4 to lead a 14-hit attack as the Yokohama BayStars beat the Yomiuri Giants 7-3 in the Central League on Friday.

Doi (8-10) held Yomiuri to three runs and six hits to win his first decision since Aug. 11 while striking out five and walking one at Yokohama Stadium. Eight of the nine Yokohama starters had at least one hit, helping the left-hander end his four-game skid.
