Sluggish Start for the Lions....

Konami Cup:
The President Lions struggled against the CBA All-Stars in the opening game of the Konami Cup. Nelson Figueroa, who was lights out in the CPBL playoffs, was hit frequently by the Chinese team. The Chinese All-Stars actually outhit the Lions 16-14. Figueroa allowed 4 runs on 12 hits over 7 innings. Things were looking bleek as the Lions were trailing their opponents 4-1 after 6 innings. However a big grand slam by DH Lien-Hung Chen would help rally the Lions for 6 runs in the 7th inning. Chen would hit another 2 run bomb in the 9th to account for 6 of the 9 runs scored by the Lions. The older brother of Chin-Feng Chen carried his team to a 9-5 victory on Thursday. Roster/Box Score/Line Score

i think they players are giving themselves too much pressure. so many of them were waiting for walks for some reason.

there was no will to actually hit the ball in some of them.

The KBO champion actually defeated the NPB champion in the second game. It's time to find out what our boys are really made of.
