Game Notes:

  • The Brothers and Guardians completed their game in a bad weather environment with the home team recording its 100th victory in team history. The Brothers were eliminated from the playoffs after the defeat.

  • Guardians SP Bryan Woodall played a very important role tonight, giving up only 2 ER in 7.1 IP. Among the six hits surrendered, five were short-range singles that didn't cause too much damage. The 14th win of the season gave Woodall the lead amongst all pitchers.

  • Guardians DH Hu Chin-Lung hit a two-run home run in the first inning to kick off the game tonight, laying the foundation for victory. This was his sixth homer in the past month.

  • Guardians RP Chen Hong-Wen took matters into his own hands in such a dicey situation with runners occupying first and third in the 8th inning. He used a fastball to strikeout Brothers RF Chen Tzu-Hao out, displaying his dominance. He has not given up a run in the past four games.
