Friday Scores...

The NT lost game 2 to the Perth Heat 5-4 on Friday. Ming-Chieh Hsu pitched 7.0 innings, allowing 5 runs (only 1 was earned) on 8 hits. The Taiwanese NT played a sloppy game, committing 4 errors. Again, the bright spots came from US minor leaguers Kuo-Hui Lo, who was 2-4 & Chih-Hsien Chiang who was 1-4 with a double and a RBI. Amateur OF Ying-Chieh Liao was the offensive star of the game. Liao was 2-4, cracking a HR and driving in two. Like fellow amateur Yi-Chuan Lin, Liao has been on the NT for the past few years (both Lin and Liao played on the 2005 NT that traveled to So Cal) - this past summer, he led the NT at the Italian Baseball Week Tourney - hitting .333 with a HR and 5 RBI's. Chia-Chia and Tarzan, the two CPBL veteran stars on this roster, were a combined 0-8 at the plate. Box/Play-By-Play

Hu's team lost 2-0 today. Hu was 0-4. Box

The Taiwan series kicks off tomorrow in Kaohsiung. Game 1 will pit Kevin Huang of the Bears against Nelson Figueroa of the Lions.

It seems that several countries are upset at the timing of the wild card entry Olympic Qualifiers taking place in Taiwan next year (March 2007).
