Sosuke Genda drove in a trio of Seibu Lions teammates to back some gutsy pitching as Samurai Japan wrapped up the Japan All-Star Series with a 4-1 win over the MLB All-Stars on Thursday.

Japan's fifth win of the six-game series was the most for a Japanese team in 12 editions of the All-Star competition dating back to 1986, and the host nation's third series win. Japan is now 2-0 since the series became a Japan national team event in 2014.

Pitching in Nagoya Dome, his home park with the Chunichi Dragons, Shotaro Kasahara (1-0) worked 4-2/3 innings before he reached the tournament's 80-pitch limit. He allowed four hits and two walks but no runs to earn the win.
