Game Notes:

  • The Guardians got their revenge after last night's extra-inning defeat as SP Cory Riordan and MVP Wu Tsung-Chun aided in a wire-to-wire victory Saturday night in Tainan to split the three-game at one game each. The Guardians jumped out to an early 2-0 lead thanks to Hu Chin-Lung's two-out two-run shot and never looked back. 
  • Fubon's Cory Riordan (7 IP, 6 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 7 K, BB) turned in his best performance as a Guardian tonight versus the Uni Lions. The righty was perfect through three frames but got touched for four runs in the fourth that cut his lead to 5-4. Unfazed, Riordan dug in and retired nine of the next 10 batters he faced to cruise to his first win as a Guardian.
  • Lions SP Bruce Billings was saddled with his first loss since July 22. Billings was touched for eight runs in 4.1 innings of work as his night was cut short after a fifth-inning, one-out, three-run home run to game-MVP Wu Tsung-Chun. Wu's longball made it 8-4 and put an end to the Lions' comeback.  
  • The Lions' loss combined with the Monkeys' win puts both clubs in a tie for the top stop in the CPBL standings.
