TOKYO - Takahiro Norimoto combined with three relievers on a no-hitter, and Japan beat the Major League Baseball All-Stars 4-0 on Saturday to take a 3-0 lead in their five-game series.

Hayato Sakamoto and Sho Nakata each hit a two-run homer.

Sakamoto connected off MLB starter Jeremy Guthrie in the second inning, and Nakata made it 4-0 in the third with a blast off Guthrie over the left field wall.

Norimoto, who went 14-10 with a 3.02 ERA this season for the Rakuten Eagles, struck out six over five perfect innings to pick up the win.

Guthrie took the loss after giving up four runs on five hits over five innings.

Robinson Cano was hit by a pitch on the right foot in the seventh inning and left the game.
