Ku-Pao defeated Kao-Yuan 9-1 in 7 innings on Sunday to sweep the 2 game series (best of 3 ) and earn bragging rights as the '09 HBT Wood Bat champs.
Ku-Pao RHP starter Chun-Lung Chang held Kao-Yuan to 1 run (unearned) on 6 hits over 7 IP (5 K's, 3 BB's). The 16 year old, who was clocked at a high of 90 mph, was a member of this year's '09 youth national team. KP LF Jui-Lin Chang was 3-4 with a 2B and 2 RBI.
Kao-Yuan starter Sheng-Nan Chen wasn't so fortunate as he was shelled in his 5 innings of work (7 runs - 6 ER, 11 H, 2 K's, 3 BB's). In all fairness to Chen, he was pitching on one day of rest after throwing a CG on Friday.
UDN reported that reps/scouts from 15 MLB teams were present at the tourney.
