Game Notes:

  • Wang Po-Jung ripped the first pitch he saw from Brothers reliever Chiang Chung-Cheng down the right-field line and into the corner for a leadoff triple. Wang would come around to score the winning run on Lin Hung-Yu's walk-off single one batter later. Lamigo needs three more wins in its final four games to break the record for best half in a CPBL season.
  • With the win, Lamigo moves to 25-5 on the season at Taoyuan Stadium and sets a new league record for winning percentage at home. 
  • Neither starting pitcher factored into the decision tonight. Lamigo's Darin Downs set a career-high with 10 punchouts over six innings. The lefty surrendered four runs—three earned—on six hits and three walks. 
  • Brothers SP Bryan Woodall was pitching with a 4-2 lead in the sixth but ran into trouble and served up the game-tying two-run single to Monkeys SS Lin Cheng-Fei before the hook. Woodall allowed four runs on seven hits and four walks. The four walks were a season-high as the right-hander had issued just five free passes in his previous 92 innings this year. 
  • The Monkeys surprisingly went to recently overused closer Chen Yu-Hsun in a tie game for the ninth frame. Chen allowed runners at the corners with one out but induced two pop-ups to maintain the status quo.
  • The Brothers stole a page out of the Washington Nationals' play calling as they swiped five bags on five tries against the Lamigo battery.  
  • The season series is tied at 9-9.

Game time: 3:50


  1. Monkeys have dependably been viewed as fun, adorable and entertainingly clever animals. They are in many cases appeared in motion pictures as having close association with people and being able to be on the same intuitive level that is not normally found to that of different creatures in the warm blooded animal kingdom.
