Second-year right-hander Kenta Ishida stretched his scoreless innings streak to 20 by going the first seven innings for the Yokohama BayStars in a 1-0 win over the Yomiuri Giants in the Central League on Wednesday.

Before 13,633 at Fukushima’s Azuma Stadium, the visitors tested Giants starter Kazuto Taguchi (2-2) in the third inning, but the lefty weathered the storm. The BayStars, however broke the ice in the sixth, when Taguchi missed with a pitch to Takayuki Kajitani in the sixth, and the slugging No. 2 hitter put a perfect swing on it for his third homer of the season.
