Three errors cost Taiwan game vs. USA

Taiwan lost it's last game in the World Cup to the US by a score of 5-4. Again, Taiwan outhit and outslugged (3 HR's) the USA, but three costly errors committed in the 6th inning allowed the US to score 4 runs, of which only 1 run was earned. Taiwan also had 3 runners picked off first base by US pitcher Christian Michalak, which was totally unacceptable and embarrassing.

Starting pitcher Sung-Wei Tseng was solid for Taiwan, going 6 strong innings, giving up only 1 ER, K'd 7 hitters, and had 2 BB's.

As for Taiwan's hitters,
Yung-Chi Chen DNP
Ching-Lung Hu was 1-4 with a double
Kuo-Hui Lo went 2-3 with a BB, a HR, and 2 RBI's
Chun-Yu Kuo went hitless in 4 AB's and K'd all 4 times

Others of note:
Ying-Chieh Liao was 2-2 with a HR and a RBI
Sheng-Wei Wang was 1-3 with a HR and a RBI, but committed 2 errors in the 6th inning

Thus ends Taiwan's play in the World Cup.
