Lefty Ryosuke Yagi allowed a run in seven innings and got plenty of run support as the Tokyo Yakult Swallows crushed the Hanshin Tigers 13-1 on Monday evening.

Yagi (1-1) scattered seven hits and two walks, while striking out three, and teammates Takahiro Araki and Yuhei Takai each hit a pair of home runs before the home fans at Jingu Stadium. The Swallows were without home run king Wladimir Balentien, who was sidelined by a slight groin injury.
