Tetsuto Yamada broke a 10th-inning tie with a three-run home run, lifting the Tokyo Yakult Swallows to a 5-2 victory over the Chunichi Dragons on Saturday afternoon.

Yamada, who this year became the first player in Nippon Professional Baseball to steal 30 bases and hit 30 home runs in four different seasons, hit the third pitch he saw from right-hander Kento Fujishima (0-1) into the stands at Nagoya Dome for his 32nd homer.
