Right-hander Shun Yamaguchi held Central League-leading Yomiuri Giants to an unearned run over six innings, and veteran Hitoshi Tamura hit a two-run homer on Wednesday as the Yokohama BayStars beat the Giants 6-2.

Yamaguchi (4-3), the BayStars former closer, allowed four hits and a walk, while striking out two before a crowd of 28,186 at Yokohama Stadium. Yamaguchi, who was thrust into the starting rotation in June, won three straight starts and pitcher of the month honors, won for the first time since June 15.
