Kris Johnson hurled seven shutout innings to win his 12th game, tying him for the most in NPB, and Takahiro Arai had three RBIs as the Central-League leading Hiroshima Carp beat the Hanshin Tigers 5-0 on Tuesday.

Johnson (12-6) allowed runners in just two of his innings as he won his third straight start. He allowed two hits and a walk, while striking out seven. Johnson joins teammate Yusuke Nomura with 12 wins alongside Pacific Leaguers Ayumu Ishikawa of the Chiba Lotte Marines and Tsuyoshi Wada of the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks.
