Your 2007 CPBL Champs: President Lions
The Lions struck first, scoring 3 runs in the top of the 4th when the #6 (Lien-Hung Chen 1-3 with a RBI), #7 (Sen Yang 2-4 with a RBI), and #8 (Tai-Chi Kuo 2-4 with a RBI) hitters in the lineup all came up with clutch hits. The Bears would score a run in the bottom of the 6th when Chin-Feng Chen (1-3 with a double and a RBI) came up with a clutch double scoring one run - however Chih-Sheng Lin (who was at first when CFC doubled) was thrown out at the plate to end the threat. The Lions would tack on another run in the 7th inning after the Bears' second baseman committed an error. Trailing 4-1 heading into the bottom of the 9th, the Bears would score their final run of the game on Chih-Sheng Lin's second HR of the series (he was 2-4 with a HR and a RBI).
For their efforts, Fu-Hao Liu of the Lions and Chin-Feng Chen (Bears) were elected Most Outstanding Players of the Series.
The championship was the 5th in the club history of the President Lions, with the last one coming in 2000. The Lions will now represent the CPBL in the 2007 Konami Cup taking place Nov. 8th through the 11th.
Congrats to the Lions (and the Bears) for an outstanding Series!
