Shunta Goto saved a run with his defense and had two big hits on Thursday as the Orix Buffaloes beat the Pacific League-leading Fukuoka Softbank Hawks 3-2 to move within 2-1/2 games of the PL lead.

Goto made the play of the game in the first inning in center field, when he raced back, vaulted well up the center-field wall at Kyocera Dome to make a run-saving catch and then ended the inning by doubling off the Hawks’ lead runner.
