Neftali Soto homered twice and drove in five runs, propelling the Yokohama BayStars to a 7-5 come-from-behind victory over the Central League pennant-chasing Hiroshima Carp on Monday.

Soto’s three-run homer capped a four-run third inning off Carp starter Kris Johnson (10-5) and gave the visitors a 4-2 lead at rainy Mazda Stadium. Soto, who didn’t make his first-team debut for the BayStars until May 6, broke the game open in the seventh with his 35th homer, a two-run shot off Makoto Aduwa.
