2007 Taiwan Series (GAME 4):
The Lions moved within one game of winning the Taiwan Series after defeating the LA New Bears 11-4 on Wednesday. Nelson Figueroa, the game MVP, defeated Wen-Hsiung Hsu with a dominant performance. NF allowed only 1 unearned run over 7 IP - giving up 9 hits to go along with 9 K's and one walk allowed.
The Lions took a lead they would not relinquish in the bottom of the first. With the bases loaded, Kuo-Ching Kao came up to the plate and smacked a grand slam to give his team a 4-1 lead after one inning of play. In the 5th inning, the Lions would tack on 5 more runs to put the game out of reach. The Bears would rally for 3 runs in the 8th on the strength of Kit Pellow's 3-run HR - but that was all she wrote for the Bears. The Lions would tack on two more runs in the bottom of the 8th for the final tally.
Offensively for the Lions: Wu-Hsiung Pan was 2-4/Tilson Brito was 0-2 with 2 walks/Kuo-Ching Kao was 1-4 with a HR and 4 RBI's/Fu-Hao Liu was 1-4 with a triple and 2 RBI's/Lien-Hung Chen was 2-4 with 2 RBI's.
