Juri Hara allowed a run in six innings, pitching the Tokyo Yakult Swallows to their third straight victory, a 4-2 win over the Central League-leading Hanshin Tigers on Friday.

Before 28,264 at historic Jingu Stadium, the second-year right-hander faced only one scoring threat through five innings, but surrendered a leadoff homer in the sixth. He then pitched out of a two-on, no-out jam to leave with a 3-1 lead.
