Game Notes:
  • No.11 Chiang Chih Hsien hit his league-leading 11th homer of the season, a grand slam, in the bottom of the 8th. It was his second-career grand slam and he has now reached base safely in 42-straight games dating back to 2015.
  • Brothers No.7 Chang Chih Hao returned to the lineup Thursday night after missing seven games due to a lower-body injury. He ended the night 2-for-4 and has now hit safely in his first 18 games to start the season. The record is 21 games, which was recently tied by teammate Chiang Chih Hsien.
  • Lamigo captain and CPBL legend No. 52 Chen Chin Feng hit a pinch-hit three-run homer in the top of the ninth, marking his 123rd CPBL home run. The DH has hit three home runs over the last week after hitting none in 2014 and 2015. The homer was also his 700th career hit and he has hit safely in six straight.
  • Monkeys No.11 Lin Hung Yu has reached base safely in 26 straight games including last year.
  • The Brothers are the fastest CPBL team to score 200 runs. The previous record was established in 29 games by the 2015 Lamigo Monkeys, but the 2016 Brothers team reached the milestone in just 25 games.
