Nagisa Arakaki pitched a three-hitter and struck out 11 for his second complete-game shutout in three starts as the Softbank Hawks edged the Orix Buffaloes 1-0 in the Pacific League on Sunday.

Arakaki (9-6) held Orix to three singles, including two by Karim Garcia, and walked just one at Yahoo Dome en route to winning his third straight start and his first shutout since his four-hit, 14-strike effort against the Seibu Lions on Sept. 4.
