Hawks clinch interleague

by Jim Allen (Jun 17, 2009)

The Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks wrapped up their second straight interleague title on Tuesday.

The Hawks beat the Chunichi Dragons 4-3 in 10 innings to move within a hair of the title, and clinched it after the Saitama Seibu Lions lost 7-6 to the Yomiuri Giants.

In Kanazawa, the host Dragons tied it in the ninth inning, but Satoru Morimoto's 10th-inning double put the visitors up by a run and Brian Falkenborg pitched a scoreless 10th for his first save.
