Sinon Bulls Routs Uni-Pesident Lions

TAIWAN – Lin Keh-chien pitched six strong innings to help the Sinon Bulls beat the Uni-President Lions 9-2 at the Tainan Municipal Baseball Stadium Wednesday as the Chinese Professional Baseball League began the second half of the season.

“It was a sweet win for us, since we have lost seven in a row to them (Uni-President),” said the ecstatic pitcher who improved his record to 6-4 on the year.

Lin Yi-chuan, who belted a pair of home runs, drilled a solo shot off Lions starter Hsu Yu-wei in the opening frame to give his team the early lead. However, Uni-President answered back in the bottom of the same inning to knot the score at 1-1.

The rookie sensation, who is seeking to become the fastest hitter to reach the 100-hit plateau in league history, had four hits to give him a total of 99 in 245 at-bats this season.

The Bulls regained the lead an inning later on Tseng Hua-wei’s high-bouncing RBI single over third base, and plated two more runs in the fourth to grab a 4-1 advantage.

Sinon tied a club record with a trio of long balls off Lions reliever Tseng Yi-cheng in the top of the ninth, highlighted by Tseng Hua-wei’s three-run shot, to clinch the blowout victory and snap a seven game losing streak to the Lions.
