Home Runs

Game Notes:
  • The Rhinos entered the bottom of the fifth inning down 6-1 and facing the reality of being in a three-games-to-none hole. Then, they rallied for seven runs in the inning, mostly thanks to four defensive miscues by the Brothers. The Rhinos added two more in the eighth and held on the ninth to get their first win of the series.
  • The Rhinos' five-run comeback was the largest in Taiwan Series history. 
  • Rhinos SP Scott Richmond got bailed out by his offense tonight. His final line: 4.1 IP, 8 H, 6 R, 6 ER, 1 BB, 4 K. 
  • Rhinos RF Kao Kuo Hui, who tied for the league lead in home runs this season, hit his first of the series. 
  • Rhinos 1B Lin Yi Chuan has an eight-game hit streak in the Taiwan Series. 
  • Every hitter in the lineup except for Lee Tsung Hsien had at least one hit for the Rhinos. 
  • Brothers SP Nick Additon was cruising until his defense imploded in the fifth. Only two of the four miscues were recorded as official errors but all four should have been outs. 
  • Brothers 2B Lin Chih Sheng, who tied for the league lead in home runs with Kao, hit three home runs, including a two-run shot to pull within one with two outs in the ninth. He's the first to hit three home runs in a Taiwan Series game and his six RBI tied for the most in Taiwan Series history. 
  • The Rhinos franchise snapped a six-game losing streak in the Taiwan Series. 
  • The Brothers lead the best-of-seven series 2-1. Game 4 goes Wednesday, 6:35 p.m. in Taoyuan.
