Game Notes:
  • Chu Yu-Hsien broke his bat and flared a two-out opposite-field single to left to snap a 2-2 tie in the bottom of the seventh as the Monkeys edged the Brothers 3-2 in the first game of the weekend series in Taoyuan. 
  • Both starters were excellent tonight. Orlando Roman went 6.2 innings and gave up just two earned runs but was saddled with the loss as Chu's game-winning RBI turned out to be the last batter he faced. Lamigo's Darin Downs turned in a quality start, giving up one earned run on six hits in six innings. 
  • Where do we start with Wang Po-Jung (2-for-3, R, HR, RBI, BB)? He hit a leadoff home run, his 28th, to extend his league lead. He has a 14-game hit streak on the go. He has scored at least one run in seven straight games. And he has at least two hits in seven games in a row. #MVP
