Bears 2 - Lions 1: Trailing by a run for most of the game, the Bears would rally behind the impressive performance of starter Mike Johnson and Hao-Chu Tseng's 2-run bomb in the top of the 8th, to pick up a full game on the league leading Lions.
MJ combined with reliever Jermaine Van Buren to 1-hit the Lions. MJ (he's now 8-0 on the year) allowed 1 run on 1 hit in 7 innings (while K'ing 4 and walking 9!). JB threw 2 scoreless/hitless innings, K'ing 3 and walking 1.
Earning a tough ND for the Lions was starter Wei-Lun Pan. Toot Toot threw 7 scoreless innings, allowing only 2 hits while K'ing 9 and walking 1.
