Nobumasa Fukuda twice drove in Ryosuke Hirata, pacing the Chunichi Dragons to a 2-1 win Thursday over the Central League-leading Yomiuri Giants.

The Giants entered the game with a magic number of four to clinch their first CL pennant since 2014. The leaders’ third straight loss cut their lead over the second-place Yokohama BayStars to three games. The Giants have seven games remaining and the BayStars six.
