Uni-President Lions Earn Shutout Win

TAIWAN – Jose Castillo drove in three runs with a pair of doubles and Pan Wei-Lun threw six scoreless innings to help the Uni-President Lions blank the Brother Elephants 8-0 in front of 4,955 fans Friday night in the Chinese Professional Baseball League.

The reigning CPBL champion tagged Brother starter T.J. Yeh for a pair of runs in four of the first five frames. Castillo, Liu Fu-Hao and Liu Fu-Hao each tallied two hits apiece for the Lions.

Pan (7-4) scattered two hits and one walk with four strikeouts to notch the win.

Yeh (0-2), who struck out five, was charged with the loss after allowing eight runs – five earned – on eight hits and four walks.


Lin Yi-Chuan and Wu Tai-shan both homered and Shoda Itsuki worked six strong innings to lead the Sinon Bulls to a 5-2 win over the La New Bears in a game shortened to seven innings due to bad weather.

With 3,455 fans trekking to the ballpark, the Bulls plated four runs in the first highlighted by Lin’s grand slam – his seventh long ball of the season. However, the Bears cut the lead to 4-2 on RBIs by Huang Long-Yi and Tsai Tsung-Yu.

Chang finished off the scoring with a solo bomb in the fourth to seal the victory.

Itsuki (7-3) allowed two runs and five hits to get the win, while La New starter Wu Si-Yo (4-5) lasted just one inning and was pinned with the loss.
