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.
