Two home runs from Stefen Romero and a ninth-inning walk-off blast from Hiroyuki Nakajima lifted the Orix Buffaloes to a 10-8 come-from-behind win over the Seibu Lions on Saturday.

Lions closer Deunte Heath (3-1), who had not allowed a run since July 18, surrendered a leadoff single to Romero in the ninth. Masataka Yoshida, who had doubled in the second inning and scored the game’s first run, doubled to put the winning runner in scoring position.
