Wang was outstanding in his start against the White Sox tonight. Limiting the Sox to 1 run on 6 hits over 7 innings, Wang earned his 2nd victory of the season. Recap/Box
There is talk that Wang may start on Sunday against cross-town rival -the NY Mets on three days of rest. Given Wang's history of arm problems, that idea does not sit well with me.
Chin-Hui Tsao relieved Randy Wolf and allowed 1 run on 3 hits over 1.2 innings. He did have 3 K's though. The Dodgers beat the Cards 5-4. Box
More on Hong-Chih Kuo's whirlwind of a day yesterday.
AA - Hu was 1-2 with a walk, a triple, and 2 runs scored. Jacksonville lost 9-2. Box
A+ - Kinston won 16-4. Wu was 0-1 as a pinch-hitter. Box
Wei-Chu Lin hit his 5th HR of the season to account for his team's lone run. Hanshin lost 6-1. Box In limited duty this year, Lin is hitting .347 in 95 AB's to lead the team, while his 5 HR's and 19 RBI's place him second behind teammate Tomoaki Kanemoto, an aging veteran star. It's good to see Lin doing well in a full-time role after the past few seasons of riding the pine and seeing only limited action as a pinch-hitter.
Bears 7 - Bulls 4: A day after hitting a big grand slam for the Bears, game MVP Sheng-Kai Lin would add a 3-run HR in the bottom of the 10th inning to win the game for the Bears. Teammate Chih-Sheng Lin added his 3rd HR of the season and was 3-4 with 4 RBI's. Kevin Huang picked up his 4th victory of the season on the strength of 1.2 shutout/hitless innings - he had 4 K's and 1 walk.
Lions 19 - Cobras 6: In a game that saw 5 HR's and 37 hits between the two teams, the Lions would prevail behind game MVP CF Sung-Hsien Yang who was 2-4 with a HR and 6 RBI's. Leading the way for the Cobras was SS Ming-Jen Kuo who was 5-5 with 2 doubles and a RBI.
