Kona Takahashi worked six innings to earn his first win of the season as the Seibu Lions beat the Chiba Lotte Marines 2-1 in the Pacific League on Thursday and dealt former Lion Hideaki Wakui his first defeat of the season.

Takahashi (1-1) allowed a run on six hits and three walks, while striking out four. The 19-year-old allowed the game’s first run when Katsuya Kakunaka doubled to open the fourth and scored on Yamaico Navarro’s long single to center. But Takahashi retired nine of the next 10 batters and left with a 2-1 lead.
