Box Score & Game Highlights

Game Notes:

  • Both the Lions and Monkeys starting pitchers were making their CPBL-debut this season. Monkeys SP Ye Jia-Ci pitched 3.2 innings, using108 pitches and serving up nine earned runs and six walks on the way to being the losing pitcher tonight. In contrast, Monkeys RP Hung Sheng-Chin had a good performance, giving up only one earned run over three innings.

  • Lions SP Chen Yu-Hsuan hasn't recorded a win since 2016. He pitched five innings, giving up five hits and one earned run, getting the W in this game after a two-year hiatus.

  • Lions C Lin You-Le recorded three hits and seven RBI, including a bases-clearing double in the bottom of the second and fourth inning. His high RBI total was an absolute heavy blow to the Monkeys and was also a career best in the CPBL.

  • The Monkeys offense seemed to awaken in the top of the seventh inning -- Wang Po-Jung and Lin Hung-Yu's consecutive hits and a two-run homer by Chu Yu-Hsien helped them close the scoring gap.

  • With a loss tonight, Lamigo Monkeys couldn't throw their championship ribbons as planned. But they did light up their magic number, M1, with a Chinatrust Brothers loss. The Monkeys could win the champion of the second-half season as long as they win their game against the Guardians on Friday.
