Complete Game Win for Wang...

MLB:
In easily his best outing of the year, CM Wang threw a complete game gem versus the White Sox. After laboring against the Red Sox in his last outing, Wang was very efficient, needing only 104 pitches to pick up win #5. Wang allowed 1 run on 5 hits, to go along with 4 K's and 1 walk. Wang dropped his ERA to 3.73 as the Yankees defeated the ChiSox 5-1. Box/Recap

Kuo is scheduled to face Padres ace Jake Peavy tomorrow - that's a tough matchup for Kuo - Peavy is arguably the premiere pitcher in the NL.

NPB:
Despite his team losing 11-1, Lin managed to go 2-5 to raise his BA to .348, creeping closer to CL leader Aoki who is at .355 Box

The Fighters won 4-1. Yang was 0-1 with a walk. Box

CPBL:
Bears 14 - Lions 8: In another CPBL slugfest that saw the Bears rap out 21 hits, Bears ss Chih-Sheng Lin hit his 6th HR of the season, while Kuo-Ching Kao hit his 10th and Tilson Brito hit his 12th HR of the season for the Lions. Bears pitcher Yu-Wei Hsu would earn the win, throwing 6 innings in relief of starter Wen-Hsiung Hsu, who lasted only 2 innings. Bears CF Long-Yi Huang earned game MVP honors for his 4-6 night at the plate. CFC was 2-5 with 2 RBI's.

Whales 2 - Cobras 2: The game was called after 7 innings due to rain. Game MVP honors went to Cobras 2B Shih-Hao Huang who was 2-3 with a 2-run HR - his first round-bagger of the season.

I'd argue that Wang's "almost perfect" game was better than his performance last night. However, Wang did seem very much in command of what he wanted to do on the mound--quite a far cry from his previous outing vs. Boston. He seemed to purposely throw "easier" than usual, and his pitches had more movement with slower velocity.

kuo not exactly facing Peavy head-to-head, so he won't have to worry.

Steve,
Good call - that game slipped my mind - I must be getting senile.

2.5 - Regardless of the fact that Peavy drove in the only run for the Padres off Kuo, I was talking about the pitching matchup.
