***South Korea has struck first, with a run scoring double by catcher Hong, putting SK up 1-0 in the top of the 4th inning.

***South Korea has scored again as J.B. Lee has doubled in another run off Taiwan's 2nd pitcher Y.J. Lin in the 5th inning.

***7th inning stretch......close ball game....anyone else think that the 65 pitch limit rule SUCKS???

***9th inning rally falls short....Our boys played a good game, hit against some MLB pitchers, E.Y. Lin showed that he is ready to play overseas, but final score - South Korea 2 Taiwan 0

This is the first time I saw any of these young players and, depite the loss, I felt quite encouraged. Our kids are going to be alright in the future--the potential is obvious their. When the Hus and the Chengs further develop their hitting Taiwan will be a formidable opponent.

The last batter in the game for Taiwan is the player that really caught my eye--great frame and good bat speed, and only an amateur. He's going to be a good one.

This is the opportunity of a lifetime for the kids in the minors. For guys like Hu and Chen, it's not everday that you get to face major league quality pitching. Hu and Chen faced 4 ML pitchers last night and held their own. They'll probably face 3 or 4 more ML quality pitchers on early Sat. morning as well. You gotta love the defensive gems that both Hu and Chen turned in last night.

I think the kid you're alluding to is Chan, the pinch-hitting amateur OF. I saw him play this summer; he's solid in all areas - defense, speed, contact hitter, etc. But he was def. overshadowed by Kuo-Hui Lo's potent bat when they were here in So Cal.
