Hideto Asamura finished a big night in a big way, with a game-winning sayonara double, lifting the Seibu Lions to a 5-4 win over the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles in 12 innings on Wednesday night.

After starting his night 0-for-2 against Eagles star right-hander Takahiro Norimoto, Asamura’s sacrifice fly put the Lions on the board, and he finished with three straight hits, including his one-out gapper to right center that plated Shogo Akiyama from first and won it in the 12th at MetLife Dome.
