ND for CMW...

MLB:CMW earned a ND against the Orioles after leaving the game in the 7th with a 6-4 lead. Unfortunately for Wang, reliever R. Villone and closer M. Rivera would each give up a run to allow the Orioles to tie things up in the 9th. The Yankees would score a run in the bottom of the 9th to pull out a 7-6 win. CMW pitched 6 innings, allowing 5 runs on 8 hits - he also allowed his first HR since June 28th - when he last faced the Orioles . Box/Recap

R - The Red Sox won 3-2. CH Huang was 2-4. Box

A - Greenville won 4-2. Chiang was 0-3. Box

AAA - Vegas is down 3-0 in the third. Hu is currently 0-1. Box

1)Here are the final stats for the senior NT at the WPT. The team Cuba sent to the WPT was essentially their "B" team - although they did have a few players that played on their '06 WBC team (finished 2nd to Japan). Cuba will be sending their top squad to the World Cup that will be held later this year (November) in Taiwan. Three members of the Taiwanese NT made the All-Star team:
1)2B Ming-Chue Tsai
2)SS Han Lin
3)LHP Wei-Hua Lee
Here's a pic of the senior NT. Congrats on your second place finish! A big thank you to Cor for providing the 411 and pic for the WPT!

Your Palomino NT interpreter/secretary is now with PONY NT @ PA. The PR team won because they have a 6-2 tall canonball pitcher who's pitches got to 93 m/hr. PR team scored 2 runs in the first inning because the CT errors and two hits. The starting pitcher of CT is Lee Yu-Hung, the left-handed ace of the team and he only allowed one hit and had 8 strike out between the 2nd and the 5th inning. In the 6th inning PR had 3 hits and scored 2 runs. CT team changed their hitting strategy and tried to come back to the game in the 7th inning but they only managed to get 2 runs back.

There'll be live webcast on
