Left-handed ace Atsushi Nomi allowed a run in six innings on Wednesday as the Hanshin Tigers beat the Hiroshima Carp 4-2 to move within a hair of the Carp in the race for the second seed in the Central League playoffs.

Nomi (9-13) gave up just five hits without a walk, while striking out four, and Matt Murton and Takashi Toritani each singled in early runs off rookie Daichi Osera (10-8) before 32,014 at Hiroshima’s Mazda Stadium.
