Rookie Kotaro Otake allowed a run over seven innings, and Kenta Imamiya contributed to both of the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks’ runs in a 2-1 win over the Chiba Lotte Marines on Thursday.

Otake (2-0) surrendered seven hits and a walk, but the Marines’ only run came on Daichi Suzuki’s fourth-inning home run at windy Zozo Marine Stadium. The lefty struck out five to outduel veteran Hideaki Wakui.
