Yoshinori Sato held the Chunichi Dragons to two runs over 5⅓ innings and earned his first win in five years as the Tokyo Yakult Swallows swept their series with a 5-2 win on Sunday in the Central League.

Before 34,840 at Nagoya Dome, Sato (1-1) gave up four hits and five walks, while striking out three in his 98 pitches. The win made up for a beating he took against the Dragons on July 9, when he allowed six runs over five-plus innings in his first game since September 2011.
