Wang was consistently around 91-94 and topped out at 95 a few times. With the win, Wang picks up victory #9 and drops his ERA to 3.36. Final score Yankees 12 - Angels 0. Box/Recap

good job Hu Chin Lung! glad he's finally getting the call up to AAA. its about time. Looks like he'll be there with Kuo. I was a bit worried during the beginning of the Yanks game when none of Wang's pitches were in the k-zone. Fortunately, after getting those few bad pitches out, he pitched pretty acurrately the rest of the game. You think its his bruised nail or somethin?

I was surprised HK beat Korea in the LLWS. HK usually loses pretty bad to Korea.Maybe theyve improved this year. Who does Taiwan play next?

More LLWS news..HK won their second game in a row. After upsetting Korea, they put a 12-1 hurting on Thailand. For some reason though the Chinese team is gone. I think they dropped out or something.
