Uncertainty on Father's Day.....

CMW earned his 8th win of the year as the Yankees blanked the Astros 13-0. Wang pitched 5 shutout innings, giving up 6 hits. He K'd 3 and walked none. Wang was 0-3 at the plate and appeared to injure his right foot rounding 3rd base in the 6th inning. Only time will tell how serious the injury is. Box

With an injury to starter Brad Penny, HC Kuo may get an opportunity to start again.

Lions 6 - Elephants 1: Lions SP Lou Pote improved his record to 9-1 after taming the Elephants offense - he held the pachyderms to 1 run on 3 hits over 6 IP (5K's, 5BB's). Taking the loss for the Elephants was starter Dan Core (6.2 IP, 4R - 3 ER, 7H, 8K's, 4BB's).

Yu-Shan Cup:

Taipei County

Taoyuan County

After rain delayed everthing by a day, things returned to normal as last year's two finalists earned their way back to the championship game. Taipei County (Ban-Chiao) will seek to avenge last year's loss to Taoyuan County.
Taipei County defeated Tainan City 7-0, led by Wei-Chen Wang's 3 hits (3-5, including a triple and 2 RBI's) in one semifinal.
Taoyuan County squeaked by Taitung County 4-2 in the other semifinal. The gold and bronze medal games will take place tomorrow.

Too bad for Tsao. What a waste of talent. Tsao is a great patriot.

Damn, I watched the game and was kind of surprised when Wang got injured. I first noticed that he was running weirdly to home plate. I figured that he probably was cramping up or twisted something. Anyway, he did walk off the field with a little help so hopefully its nothing that serious. I guess he will probably miss his next start but I dont think it should keep him out long. Keep a close watch for the MRI results soon. Also, I read the article on Penny and it didnt say anything on Kuo getting another chance at starting(unless I missed it). Is it in the article somewhere? Anyway, Park Chan Ho just gave up 5 runs in 1 inning today and took the loss so if the choice is betwen Kuo and Park, Kuo has a better chance of getting the nod at starter right now. I am not sure how he will do though. Kuo doesnt seem to be able to pitch deep into games. I would usually set his bar at around 5 innings.
