Ying-Chieh Lin figured in another no-decision in the Eagles loss to the Lotte Marines - the NPB defending champs. Lin pitched 5.1 innings and gave up 2 earned runs on 4 hits. Lin has held his own against 2 of the better offensive ball clubs in Japan - the Hawks and Marines. Hopefully, his team can start supporting him with more offense.
In the US, Yung-Chi Chen had a magnificent 2006 debut for the IE 66ers. Chen went 4-5 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI's, had a stolen base, and assisted in 2 double plays. What a night for Chen, who surprisingly played at 2B tonight.
***Update: Thanks J for getting me up to speed on Wu's performance.
Wu also had his debut tonight. Box Score
