Alfredo Despaigne drove in a go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly in the 11th inning as the Chiba Lotte Marines edged the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters 2-1 in the Pacific League on Thursday for their fourth straight victory.

Nippon Ham’s sixth and last reliever Hirotoshi Takanashi (1-2) allowed a one-out single to Yoshifumi Okada and he reached third on a hit-and-run from Ikuhiro Kiyota before Despaigne hit the sac fly to center for the go-ahead run at Ocean Stadium.
