Shinnosuke Ogasawara threw five shutout innings to earn his first win of the year as the Chunichi Dragons beat the Tohoku Rakuten Golden Eagles 6-3 on Friday, with Alex Guerrero hitting his sixth home run in four interleague games.

Ogasawara (1-1), who was 2-6 as a rookie last season, held the strong Rakuten batting order to two hits and three walks. The lefty struck out seven before he got the hook after a 110-pitch effort, with his team leading 1-0.
