Tuesday Minor League News...

AA - Although selected to play in the Southern League All Star Game today, Hu will not be participating because of yesterday's obligations in SF.

A - Lansing won 11-5. Keng picked up save #2, throwing 1.1 shutout innings. Box

A - Greenville lost 7-6. Chiang doubled in his last at bat, driving in 2 runs to help tie things up in the top of the 9th. That was Chiang's only hit in 5 AB's - he also committed his 6th error of the season. Box

A ss - Tri-City is losing 1-0 in the 2nd innings. SA Kuo is starting for Tri-City. Game Log/Box

R - GCL action: Red Sox 12 - Reds 5 > A lot of Taiwanese kids in action, CH Lin was 1-3 with a triple, 2 walks. CH Huang was 0-1 and committed his first error of the season at 3B. Facing the Red Sox was TK Chiu, who earned the loss in the game. Chiu threw 4 innings, allowing 5 runs on 7 hits - he did have 5 K's/1BB. Box

R - Bristol won 5-3. PY Lin earned victory #3, throwing 6 innings, allowing 2 runs on 7 hits. Box

As mentioned in the comments section, China withdrew from the LLWS - Asian/Pacific Regional. So Taiwan will get 2 days off before facing off against SK and HK. I assume that July 13th will be left open for games that are potentially rained out earlier in the week. The team with the best record will advance to the championship game. Should there be a tie, the team with the lowest RAR # (Runs Against/Innings Played?) after pool play will play the Pacific Champions on July 14th. In this scenario, the only must-win game for Taiwan is HK, it can still advance to the championship game as long as its pitching staff keeps the scores down against SK and HK. Of course, a sweep would be ideal!
