Masato Furuno worked into the seventh en route to his first win of the season and his teammates gave Yomiuri starter Chris Seddon a beating as the Tokyo Yakult Swallows routed the Giants 9-1 on Wednesday evening.

Yakult hit one line drive after another off Seddon (2-1) and the soft-tossing lefty didn’t survive the third inning, allowing six runs in 2-2/3 innings. Things were so off kilter that when manager Tatsunori Hara pulled his starter he opted to make a double switch and take catcher and captain Shinnosuke Abe out at the same time.
