Kodai Senga’s troubled season showed signs of turning around on Wednesday, as he went six innings in the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks’ 3-0 win over the Tohoku Rakuten Eagles in the Pacific League.

Senga (2-1) was named to Japan’s Olympic team despite being hurt most of the season. The win was his first since he hurt his ankle in his season debut in April. Four relievers finished up as SoftBank’s pitchers set a franchise record by throwing 42 consecutive scoreless innings.
