Wang roughed up in home opener...

Chien-Ming Wang was fortunate to get a no-decision today, as his team came from behind to pull out a win against the Royals. Wang struggled with keeping his sinker down today, and was tagged with 5 earned runs in 6 innings pitched. He also gave up a HR to Reggie Sanders. Box Score The most frustrating part about Wang's performance is that in both games, Wang has gone into the 4th inning with a comfortable 4-0 or 4-1 lead, before having that one lousy inning.

Elsewhere in the minors, Hu finally got a hit as he went 1-4 today. Box

Cheng and Keng took the mound together again today for Lansing. Despite a fairly decent performance from both players, Cheng took the loss as he started the game and went 4.1 innings, giving up 2 earned runs, while K'ing 7 and walking 2. Keng relieved Cheng and pitched 2.2 scoreless innings while K'ing 2. Box

Wisconsin found a way to get Wu in the game today as a DH. Wu went hitless in 5 AB's, but managed to get a RBI on a sac-fly and also stole his first base of the season. Box

Entering the bottom of the 9th inning, Chen was 0-3 in a scoreless game vs. the Lancaster JetHawks. Follow Game Log here. Box
