Lee Dae-ho scored the game’s first run and drove in the game-winner in the 10th inning as the Fukuoka Softbank Hawks beat the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles 3-2 on Friday to extend their Pacific League lead to 2-1/2 games over the Orix Buffaloes.

Former Hawks reliever Brian Falkenborg (1-4) allowed a run on three hits to suffer the loss at Kobo Stadium and waste nine strong innings from Eagles right-hander Takahiro Norimoto.
