The NT defeated Mexico 6-1 on Saturday. This was an impressive victory considering who was on the Mexican NT. The Mexican NT had several players with AAA or MLB experience including positional players Karim Garcia, Jesus Cota, & Miguel Ojeda, and pitchers Roberto Ramirez, Jose Silva, & David Cortes.
SP Chien-Fu Yang and amateur relievers Kai-Wen Cheng (clocked at a high of 94 mph!) & Chia-Jen Lo (clocked at a high of 95 mph!) limited the potent lineup to only 1 run on 7 hits combined. On offense, Cheng-Min Peng led the way with 3 hits and 2 RBI's. The NT collected 13 hits against the Mexican pitchers.
Other winners on the day included South Korea, Canada, and Germany.
Taiwan plays Germany tomorrow.
