Taishi Ota tripled in two runs in the seventh inning to break a tie as the Yomiuri Giants snapped the Yokohama BayStars’ three-game winning streak with a 3-1 victory on Friday in the Central League.

BayStars starter Shoichi Ino (5-8) gave up a leadoff double to pinch hitter Yasuhiro Yamamoto in the seventh inning. A sacrifice and a groundout saw him reach third, before Ino walked Hayato Sakamoto. Ota then hit a liner to left-center off a hanging forkball on a full count.
