Chihiro Kaneko showed up Kenta Maeda twice Friday night.

Not only did the Orix Buffaloles ace out-pitch Maeda, though not by much, he helped secure a 3-1 win over the Hiroshima Carp with a two-out RBI double off Maeda in the seventh inning. The hit was Kaneko’s first since a single against the Hanshin Tigers June 9, 2012, and the first double of his career — though he pitches in the Pacific League which affords him only a handful of plate appearances each year.
