Yasuyuki Kataoka singled in the winning run in the top of the 10th inning as the Yomiuri Giants beat the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters 2-1 in interleague action on Wednesday.

The Giants scored one run off double-duty Shohei Otani, who hit 160 kph on the radar gun for the second straight game. The right-hander allowed four hits and two walks, while striking out six before leaving with a leg cramp after 6⅓ innings. Otani, who also plays right field for the Fighters, batted seventh and went 0-for-2.
