Ryosuke Kikuchi and Jesus Guzman sparked a comeback as the Hiroshima Carp overturned a four-run deficit in a 5-4 victory over the Tokyo Yakult Swallows on Thursday night.

Trailing 4-3 in the eighth before a loud crowd of 30,136 at Tokyo's Jingu Stadium, Guzman found the gap in right for a two-run opposite-field double off setup man Logan Ondrusek (4-2).

"This feels great, to win the game," Guzman said. "To win the game, no matter how, that's the most important thing."
