You gotta take your hat off to the starting pitchers on the NT - collectively, they've allowed only 2 runs in the 4 games played (including tourney favs Japan and Cuba). Unfortunately for today's starter, Chen-Chang Lee, the one run he'd give up was the only run scored in the game. Lee was phenomenal against the Cuban NT, allowing only 1 run on 3 hits over 6.2 IP (7 K's, 2 BB's). His only mistake of the game was a solo HR allowed in his last inning of work to LF Frederich Cepeda.
Give the NT some credit for shaking off yesterday's disaster and giving Cuba all it could handle (even with CFC out of the lineup).
