Hiroshi Harao drove in all three runs with a bases-loaded double and a solo homer as the Seibu Lions beat the Yomiuri Giants 4-1 at the Tokyo Dome in Game 6 of the Japan Series. The series now heads for a Game 7 for the first time since 2004.
Takayuki Kishi, two days after pitching a complete game 147-pitch shutout, pitched 5 2/3 innings of relief to take the win for the Lions. Hisanori Takahashi took the loss for the Giants.
Yomiuri is looking for its 21st Japan Series title and Seibu is trying to pick up its 13th.
