SAITAMA — Urawa Reds finally snapped their seven-game losing streak on Sunday with a 4-1 win over Montedio Yamagata that was not quite as convincing as the final score might suggest.

Sergio Escudero gave Urawa the chance to wipe out the pain of the past two-and-a-half months with a fifth-minute opener, and a penalty converted by Robson Ponte 17 minutes later suggested Volker Finke’s side was ready to set the record straight with a deluge of goals at Saitama Stadium.
