Yuki Nishi allowed two runs over 6⅓ innings and three relievers completed the win as the Hanshin Tigers held off the Hiroshima Carp 3-2 in the Central League on Wednesday.

The win at historic Koshien Stadium outside Osaka moved the fourth-place Tigers to within one game of the third-place Carp, while Hanshin center fielder Koji Chikamoto inched closer to Japan’s record for consecutive games with a hit.
