USA Prevails 4-2.....

The NT lost another close game despite being limited to only 5 hits from the US pitching staff. Taiwan was led by SS Chih-Sheng Lin's big night at the plate - he was 2-4 with a double, a HR, and a RBI. Taiwan will try and salvage some pride in their last game against Canada tomorrow. A loss would signify the worst-ever showing by the NT in the Olympic Games.

Box/Play-By-Play/Game Recap (There will def. be some coaching changes to the NT after the OG are finished)

Chih-Sheng Lin's HR:

Chih-Sheng Lin's Double in the 5th Inning - leading to the NT's first run scored:

A+ - Kinston lost 17-14. SW Tseng allowed a run in 2 innings of work. Box

The Dodgers are down 5-3 to the Rockies in the 8th. HC Kuo has walked the first 2 batters he's faced. Box

Taiwan finally prevailed in a close game, beating Canada 6-5 in 12 innings. Although, I have to admit that the strike zone got kinda big for our pitchers at the bottom of the 12th, I wouldn't be surprise if the Canadian manager blame the umpire for that after the game.

It's been tough for our boys in Beijing with the loss to China and all the close game that got away from them, but at least it has ended on a high note. Time to put this behind us and get ready for WBC!

Kuo's era ballooned to 2.26 after walking the first 2 and then givin up a 3 run homer. I think Torre is over pitching Kuo. He isnt getting enough rest right now. He should go back to pitching about once a week.
