Hanshin catcher Ryutaro Umeno had a three-hit game for the second day in a row, driving home three runs Friday to power the Tigers 8-5 over the Central League-leading Hiroshima Carp for their third consecutive win.

Hiroshima had a 4-0 lead by the top of the fourth inning as Brad Eldred belted a solo homer and a two-run clout while up-and-coming Ryoma Nishikawa had an RBI triple — all off Randy Messenger at Koshien Stadium.
