Kazuto Taguchi held the Yokohama BayStars to a run on two hits over 7-2/3 innings and won his third straight start as the Yomiuri Giants secured a 5-2 victory in the Central League on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old Taguchi (8-6), who had his first career shutout a week ago against the Chunichi Dragons, fanned seven and was pulled after issuing his fourth and final walk with his team leading 5-0. Reliever Seiji Tahara entered and surrendered a two-run home run to Toshiro Miyazaki.
