Win #15 & CG No-Hit Victory Vs. Japan!

CMW won his 15th game of the season against AL Central contender Detroit in impressive fashion. Wang threw 8 innings, allowed 2 runs (only 1 earned) on 5 hits - to go along with 6 K's and 2 walks. It was good to see Wang effectively utilize his sinker as he induced 12 GO's (vs. 6 FO's). After today's performance, Wang's ERA stands at 3.95. Box/Recap

The Taiwanese junior NT defeated the junior NT from Japan (not their "A" squad though) 3-0 on Saturday. Rong-Hao Hsieh and Chih-Lung Huang combined on the NO-HIT shutout as Hsieh K'd 3 over the first 5 innings and Huang K'd 5 over the last 4 innings. Hsieh was clocked at a high of 89 mph while Huang was clocked at 94 mph in the 9th. With the win, Taiwan's toughest competition will come from South Korea who won their opening game 20-0 over HK in 6 innings. Taiwan plays Thailand tomorrow.

Just some LL news, Japan lost today 3-2 in the 8th to Georgia in the final of the LLWS. Though they beat us, I was still rooting for them today as a fellow Asian team. In other news, Wang pitches against the Sox thursday against Schilling. If he had pitched Tuesday instead, It would've been a great matchup between the 2 best Asian pitchers in the majors. Matsuzaka and Wang. Also my 2 favorite pitchers

Last I heard Chen was rehabbing in Arizona - I don't think we'll be seeing him this year in any games.
