Yuki Yanagita erupted for five RBIs as the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks hammered the Chiba Lotte Marines for the second straight day on Saturday, winning 14-3 to stay at the top of the Pacific-League standings.

Yanagita, who had four RBIs on Friday in the Hawks’ 11-3 rout of the Mariners, was again at the center of SoftBank’s offense. He singled in a run in both the first and second innings before a three-run blast over the left-center field wall in the third off Lotte rookie Ryota Sekiya (4-4).
