Seiya Suzuki was the hero again as he hit a three-run homer in the ninth inning for his second walk-off shot in two games, handing the Hiroshima Carp their fifth straight win on Saturday with a 4-3 victory over the Orix Buffaloes in interleague action.

The 21-year-old, who hit a 12th-inning two-run homer a day earlier at Mazda Stadium, went up to the plate with his team trailing 3-1. Orix closer Yoshihisa Hirano (1-4) gave up two singles and with one out and runners on the corners, Suzuki slugged a 2-1 forkball over the left-field wall.
