Tomoyuki Sugano worked 7-2/3 solid innings and the Yomiuri Giants broke out of a scoring slump in a 7-1 win over the Hiroshima Carp in a clash between the Central League’s top two clubs.

Sugano (11-5), who had been sidelined for most of August with inflammation in the middle finger of his throwing hand, allowed one run on five hits and a walk, while striking out eight. The second-year right-hander has won both of his starts since returning to duty on Sept. 10. The Giants’ win at Mazda Stadium left them leading the second-place Carp by five games and the third-place Hanshin Tigers by 7-1/2.
