Kenta Imamiya hit a pair of tie-breaking singles to lift the Pacific League’s Fukuoka Softbank Hawks to a 2-1 interleague win over the Central League-leading Hiroshima Carp on Wednesday.

Kenji Akashi had three hits, a walk and a stolen base in the Hawks’ leadoff spot to set the hosts up to complete their two-game sweep. The loss extended Hiroshima’s winless streak at Yafuoku Dome to nine games.
