Shuta Tonosaki hit a three-run, first-inning home run, leading the Seibu Lions to an 11-4 victory over the Orix Buffaloes on Tuesday that saw two ejections.

With the Lions leading 5-1 in the third, the benches emptied momentarily after Seibu starter Hiromasa Saito hit Shunta Goto, although nothing came of it. The teams exchanged words and shoves earlier this month in Osaka, and things heated up when Orix catcher Kenya Wakatsuki was hit by a pitch in the fourth inning.
