Tough Day.....

Wang faced off against the Sox and didn't have his best stuff tonight. With problems locating his pitch in the first inning, Wang was lucky to get out of the inning with only one run being given up. A defensive gem by Bubba Crosby saved Wang 2 runs in that first inning. In between the first and fifth innings, Wang pitched better, getting ahead in the count on most of the hitters. In the 5th inning, the Sox got to Wang for 2 more runs. Bottom Line: 5 innings pitched, 4 batters walked, 0 K's, 3 earned runs - a no decision for Wang. Wang was clocked between 90 to 95 mph on his fastball. Box

As reported earlier by Anony and Frank, Kuo was demoted by the Dodgers to AAA - not surprising, considering Kuo's struggles with his command of late. Article on Kuo's demotion.
Speaking of Kuo, his command struggles continued at AAA today. Kuo pitched 1 inning, gave up 2 walks, and an earned run. Of the 10 pitches Kuo threw, only 2 were strikes. Box

In Japan, Lin K'd in his only pinch hit appearance in the 8th inning. Box

In A+ ball, Chen went 2-5 at the plate with a double and a run scored. Box

In A ball, Keng took his first loss of the season in a 7 inning game. Again control was an issue for Keng. Box

Wu went 0-3 with a RBI for Wisconsin in a 7 inning game. Box

Another reason for Kuo to go down the Minor League is get in shape. 235 lbs for someone at 6 ft is a little heavy.

True, but Kuo has always been built like a brickhouse. When you see pics of Tsao and Kuo when they first signed, you realize how much they've both ballooned - more visible in Tsao though.
