Extra Innings Loss to Canada....

The NT lost in 10 innings to Canada 6-5 on Monday. After falling behind 4-2 through 5 1/2 innings, the NT would respond with a 3-run HR from Kuo-Hui Lo to take the lead. Relievers Chia-Jen Lo, Chien-Ming Chiang, and Kevin Huang were unable to hold the lead for starter Fu-Te Ni (7.2 IP, 3 ER, 9 Hits) as Canada would score once in the 9th to tie the game and then take the lead for good in the top of the 10th.

Other winners on the day included South Korea, Germany, and Mexico. The NT gets an off-day tomorrow before taking on Australia on Wednesday in what will be a must-win game if it wants to control its own destiny. Remaining on the NT's schedule after the game with Australia is South Africa on Thursday and then South Korea on Friday.

So what do we gotta do to make sure we stay in the top 3? Beat Australia? Im actually looking forward to us playing the Korean NT. Our NT has had a pretty strong showing so far even without some of our big bats and better pitchers. While watching some of the games I noticed how huge the crowds were for those games. geez, I wish the CPBL games could fill up like that

If Taiwan beats Australia and assuming an automatic W against South Africa, then we're practically guaranteed a top 3 berth since we'll only have 2 losses at most. Assuming Australia and Mexico win out the other games, they'll both have 3 losses. Germany's 3 remaining games are against 3 of the toughest teams in the tourney so I'd discount them from the race for the final 3.
