Tomotaka Sakaguchi’s sacrifice fly plated the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning to lift the Tokyo Yakult Swallows to a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over the Hiroshima Carp on Thursday night.

Swallows No. 8 hitter Yuhei Nakamura opened the 10th with a double off Hiroshima’s third reliever, Takeru Imamura (0-2), who had entered the game by pitching a 1-2-3 ninth. A sacrifice moved the runner to third and Sakaguchi ended the 4-hour, 4-minute game before 23,277 at Jingu Stadium with a fly to center.
