Hideaki Wakui went the distance and Yamaico Navarro drove in four runs as the second-place Chiba Lotte Marines defeated the Pacific League-leading Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks 9-6 on Monday evening.

Wakui (7-3) didn’t allow the Hawks much until the seventh inning, when he was sitting on a 9-0 lead. The right-hander allowed 12 hits, but just one walk, while striking out three in a 135-pitch night before a packed house of 46,776 at Tokyo Dome.
