Junior NT Keeps On Rollin'...
*Call it the luck of the draw, but the junior NT finds itself in position to make a run at a medal. Taiwan defeated Venezuela 9-0 on Wednesday to complete pool play.
By finishing 2nd in its pool and because of Cuba's upset loss to the Netherlands on that Wed., Taiwan found itself matched up against the #3 seed in the other pool - the Netherlands. Behind Chun-Lin Kuo's CG,18 K! performance and IF Tzu-Wei Lin's clutch 3-run bomb, the NT rallied to defeat (4-2) an up-and-coming program in the junior Dutch team.
Taiwan will now play the Canadian junior NT (in their backyard) today at 4:00 PM Pacific in one semifinal.
The game is scheduled to be shown online.
*The collegiate NT dropped its first game on Friday to Canada 3-2 at the WUBC. The team will face the US tomorrow.
*The Dodgers released RHP Sung-Wei Tseng.
