Shuichi Murata hit a two-out, walk-off single in the ninth inning as the Yomiuri Giants snapped their five-game skid with a 3-2 win over the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles on Wednesday in interleague action.

Yomiuri led in the third through a two-run shot from Itaru Hashimoto, who was playing in his third game of the season. Hashimoto, who went 2-for-3 with a sacrifice, led off the ninth with a single off Rakuten reliever Koji Aoyama (0-4), who was in his second inning of work.
