Sho Nakata went 4-for-5 with five RBIs and lifted the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters to within four games of the Pacific League summit on Sunday as they beat the first-place Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks 8-3.

Nakata turned the game around with a sharp two-run single off SoftBank’s Kenichi Nakata (3-3) in the third, and blasted over the left-center wall for another two runs in the fourth off reliever Sho Iwasaki.
