The Uni Lions got back to their winning ways once again Thursday night avenging Wednesday night's loss with an 8-6 victory over the EDA Rhinos.
Lions starting pitcher Chen Yun Wen was superb through six innings, allowing just one earned run on four hits while striking out eight Rhino batters. Offensively the Lions were led by game MVP Zheng Kai Wen who finished the night 1-for-3 with a three-run blast that gave the Lions the lead after the Rhinos were able to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh.
The Rhinos got one back in the bottom of the ninth, but that was about it as Lions closer Wang Ching Ming was able to strike out Rhinos center fielder Lin Che Hsuan to secure the victory and notch his second save of the young season.
Both teams will head South tomorrow with the Lions taking on the Chinatrust Brothers at Taichung Intercontinental Stadium, while the Rhinos will face the Lamigo Monkeys at the Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium. First pitch for both games will be at 6:35 p.m.
