  • In the top of the second, Guardians SS Chen Kai-Lun hit a double to left field with runners on first and second scoring both runners and getting the Guardians on the board first. But the Lions subsequently got one run back in the bottom of the second  inning with two consecutive singles hit by Tang Chao-Ting and Lin You-Le.
  • Lions 3B Kuo Fu-Lin hit a homer for the second consecutive game in the postseason. Unlike the three-run walk-off home run yesterday, the homer he hit today brought the Lions within one of the Guardians in the fourth inning.
  • In the top of the fifth, seven hits and a home run blew the game wide open for the Guardians. With this offensive onslaught, they took a 10 to 2 lead, giving them more breathing room.
  • Guardians SP Taylor Jordan pitched six innings and surrendered seven hits, two walks, three strikeouts and two runs, recording a quality start. On the flip side, Lions RP, Huang Jun-Yan, recorded no outs and gave up five earned runs.
  • The Guardians led from the beginning to the end and won the game by nine runs. Now the series is tied at 1-1. There are still three games in the coming days and both teams are eager to take another two wins and play for the championship.
