Shohei Otani belted two homers for the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters on Saturday, propelling them to an 8-1 win over the Pacific-League leading Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks.

Otani, the Fighters ace pitcher and designated hitter, blasted an opposite-field, two-run shot off Kodai Senga (8-1) in the third and smashed another two-run shot that traveled over the center-field wall in the seventh off reliever Shinya Kayama, taking his season tally to 16.
