Cal League - Redux with Chen?

Well, it's early in the season, but another Chen is at or near the top in several categories in the California League. Back in '99, Chin-Feng Chen was also playing in the California League - with the San Bernardino Stampede - now known as the Inland Empire 66ers. Chen went on to win the MVP of the league that year. Fast forward to 2006, Yung-Chi Chen is quietly tearing things up with the Inland Empire 66ers. As of 5/12/06, Chen was in the league's top 2 in BA (.356), runs scored (26), and stolen bases (14). Tonight, Chen was 1-4 with a double, 2 runs scored, a sac-fly RBI that ended up winning the game for his team, but also committed his 4th error on the year. Box

Hu finally put together back to back impressive performances at the plate. Hu was 3-5 with 2 runs scored and a sacrifice. Hu scored a key run in the 11th that helped his team to win 6-5 in extra innings. Box

Wu got in some PT as a catcher for Wisconsin in one game of a doubleheader. Wu K'd twice in 2 AB's. Box
