Ariel Miranda pitched out of a pair of bases-loaded jams and Kenji Akashi delivered a tie-breaking, two-run single as the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks beat the Hokkaido Nippon Ham Fighters 2-0 in the Pacific League on Sunday.

Miranda (6-3) survived five walks and an error, allowing just two hits over five innings to earn the win. The lefty loaded the bases with walks in the top of the third but got cleanup hitter Sho Nakata to fly out and end the inning.
