Tuesday Scoop....

Amateur:
1)Taiwan lost to Tamiami, FL 16-10 in the semis of the Bronco World Series - thus ending their run in Monterey, CA. The team had fallen behind early in the game 8-1, but had managed to crawl back into the game tying things up at 10 runs apiece in the 6th inning. Unfortunately, the Tamiami squad was too powerful as they hit 2 HR's in the 7th inning to complete the scoring. Taiwan, on the basis of its record, finished 3rd in the World Series.

2)Taiwan will not be competing in the World Youth "AA" Baseball Championships that will be held in August in Venezuela - the team was not issued player visas from the host country for BS political reasons. Link If you ask me, Venezuela should NEVER be allowed to host another IBAF event again. It is sickening to see the kids from Taiwan get punished for some political platform when the only thing they really care about is playing baseball. Sports should be used as a means to unite people not segregate them! *EDITED - UPDATED


3)In the WPT, Taiwan lost another close game to Cuba - this time in 13 innings. Despite leads of 3-0 after 4 and 5-4 after 8, Taiwan came up short as Cuba pulled out a 6-5 win. DH Chun-Tai Wang cracked a HR and drove in 2 for Taiwan while OF Chih-Yao Chan was 3-7 with a double and a RBI. Box Taiwan will play the host team tomorrow.



MLB:

CMW faces off against Blue Jays ace Roy Halladay tomorrow. Should be a good one.



NPB:

The Tigers lost to the Giants 3-2. WC Lin was 1-3 with a walk. Box



US MINORS:
R - CH Wen is currently 0-1 as the Cubs play the Angels in the AZL. Box



CPBL:
Lions 17 - Bulls 6: Bulls starter Chien-Fu Yang continues to struggle this year as he fell to 3-10 on the season. Yang has been one of the top concensus domestic pitchers in the CPBL. Game MVP honors went to Lion Sen Yang, who was 3-5 with 5 RBI's. Teammate Tilson Brito was 4-6 with a double and 2 RBI's, while KC Kao was 3-5 with a RBI. For the Bulls, Tarzan was 2-4 with a double and 2 RBI's/Kuo-Long Hsu was 2-5 with a double and 2 RBI's/& Da-Hung Tseng was 2-4 with 2 RBI's.
