Kan Otake held the Hanshin Tigers to three hits over eight innings to hand the Yomiuri Giants their third straight victory on Saturday as they won 3-0 in the Central League.

Otake (5-2) allowed a leadoff double to Fumiya Hojo in the first, but that was the only time Hanshin put a runner in scoring position. Otake fanned 10 and walked none to silence the Tigers’ bats, retiring the last 15 batters he faced after Shun Takayama’s leadoff single in the fourth. The loss was Hanshin’s fourth straight.
