Two Away From 20!

CMW picked up his 18th win of the season against the KC Royals, joining Josh Beckett as the ML leaders in that category. Wang struggled with his control (90 PC - 52 called strikes) but still managed to pull out the win, throwing 7 innings, allowing 3 runs (all in the 4th inning - on a 3 run double to rookie Alex Gordon) on 5 hits to go along with 4 K's and 4 walks. A-Rod hit HR #52 to help power the Yanks offense to a 6-3 win. Box/Recap 1/Recap 2
Wang's next scheduled start will probably be against the Boston Red Sox this coming weekend.

Lions 18 - Bulls 4: Despite falling behind 2-0, Wei-Lun Pan earned his 14th victory of the season after an offensive outburst by his teammates - the team would score 12 runs in the 5th inning alone!! Pan allowed 2 runs on 8 hits over 5 IP - he had 6 K's and 2 walks. Game MVP - Lions RF Fu-Hao Liu was 3-3 with 2 doubles and 3 RBI's. Other Lions notables: TB was 2-5 with a double and 2 RBI's/KC Kao was 2-4/Chih-Kang Kao was 1-2 with HR #5 and 3 RBI's. For the Bulls, SS Chao-Hsing Cheng hit HR #8 and Tarzan was 2-3.

Whales 9 - Elephants 2: Wei-Ming Chu picked up win #5 for the Whales, as he allowed 2 runs on 7 hits over 6 IP. WMC received support from game MVP CF Jen-Chieh Hsu who was 2-4 with a triple and 4 RBI's/DH Chia-Hung Chen hit HR #3 off loser TJ Yeh and was 2-4 with a double/Carlos Villalobos was 1-3 with a double and 2 RBI's/Chang-Long Yeh was 2-3 with 2 doubles and a RBI. Chia-Chia was 1-3 for the Elephants and teammate CY Chen was 0-4 - catcher Chih-Hung Chen hit HR #2 and drove in the only runs for the Elephants.

Terror, How many wins do you think Wang can get with the remainder of the season? I say he can get the magical 20

I think 20 is an attainable goal, esp. if he can win againt the Red Sox this weekend.

Seeing that both Becket and Wang pitch on the same day, I think it's possible that they'll face each other in the next series. That'd be a game to watch.

One helluva matchup that should be on national tv too.
