The team has secured second place in group A and is moving on to the second round where it will face the top three teams from group B: Japan, Italy, the Netherlands.

*The Elephants pulled off the unthinkable, winning the 2010 Taiwan Series by sweeping the Bulls.  Elephants SP Jim Magrane won the Series MVP.  The Elephants will now prepare for a 2 game tilt against the KBO champs - the SK Wyverns next month (Nov. 4th and 5th).
