Rookie Daichi Osera (3-1) came within three outs of his first shutout but settled for his first complete game as the Hiroshima Carp avoided a three-game sweep on Thursday night by beating the Hanshin Tigers 6-1.

Osera, the Carp’s top draft pick last autumn, allowed eight hits and two walks, while striking out seven to win his third straight decision and move Central League-leading Hiroshima one full game ahead of second-place Hanshin.
