Game Notes:
  • With runners on first and second and trailing by one, Lions CF Tang Chao-Ting hit a hard ground ball that bounced off the glove of Fubon 1B Lin Yi-Chuan and into shallow right field, allowing the tying run to score. Guardians RF Kao Hsiao-Yi then came up throwing, trying to nab the runner at third, and instead threw the ball into the stands, giving the Lions the walk-off victory. 
  • Fubon had a 7-2 lead heading into the seventh inning but saw its lead erased as the Lions scored five runs off of relievers Lai Hung-Cheng and Scott Richmond. 
  • Lions 1B Su Chih-Chieh hit his first home run of the season. The 2016 first-overall pick was playing in just his third game of the season as he returns from injury. 
  • The Lions have won four straight, while the Guardians have dropped four in a row. Fubon has also lost 10 straight on the road.
