Mitsuo Yoshikawa dodged bullets to work 5⅓ scoreless innings for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters, who defeated the Orix Buffaloes 4-1 in the Pacific League to stretch the franchise’s longest win streak to 15 games.

Before 20,892 at Kyocera Dome, Yoshikawa surrendered six hits and a walk, and hit a batter, while striking out three, and reliever Keisuke Tanimoto bailed him out of a one-out bases-loaded jam in the sixth.
