The 20th-ranked Latvian will face Caroline Wozniacki of Denmark in the final.
The first set started very close, while Sevastova managed to break the serve to the US Open champion to have a 4-3 lead, allowing her to gain confidence, reports Efe news.
And the world number 20 saw out the set in resounding fashion with an ace out wide, before carrying her momentum into the second with a break for 3-2 as Osaka erred on the forehand side.
Naomi Osaka admitted that she gets "stressed out" trying to live up to "the hype" after the US Open champion was beaten in the China Open semi-finals on Saturday. Asked at the post-match press conference, where she again looked unhappy, why she had had tears in her eyes on court, she replied curtly, "Because it was a hard match".
