The Yomiuri Giants overcame the mistake that put them in an early hole against the Hiroshima Carp.

The Carp weren't as fortunate on the game's final play.

Hayato Sakamoto hit a game-tying home run in the sixth, Shuichi Murata hit a go-ahead single in the seventh, and the infield pair combined to record the final out of Yomiuri's 3-2 win when Hiroshima's Masato Akamatsu overran third base in Game 1 of the Central League Climax Series Final Stage at Tokyo Dome.
