Yoshinobu Takahashi hit a tiebreaking two-run single with two outs in the eighth inning Sunday to lift the Central League-leading Yomiuri Giants to a 3-1 win that completed a three-game sweep of the Chunichi Dragons.

A day after Takahashi hit a three-run homer in another pinch-hit performance in Saturday’s 10-inning, 7-6 win, he was back for more heroics after Chunichi starter Tatsuro Hamada and reliever Shinji Tajima combined to load the bases with an eighth-inning leadoff double, hit batsman and a walk at Tokyo Dome.
