Chris Marrero drove in the winning runs on Sunday as the Orix Buffaloes claimed a 5-2 come-from-behind victory over the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks to end the Pacific League leaders’ nine-game win streak.

The Buffaloes struggled against Hawks’ starter Yuki Matsumoto at Kyocera Dome before a nine-batter, five-run eighth. Marrero’s bases-loaded double broke a 2-2 tie against the visitors’ bullpen and helped the hosts take one win from the three-game series.
