Sinon Continues Uni-President Lions Slide

TAIWAN – Da-Hung Cheng drilled a walk-off, two-run homer and the Sinon Bulls overcame a 4-3 deficit with three scores in the ninth inning to beat the reeling Uni-President Lions 6-4 Sunday in action from the Chinese Professional Baseball League.

The Bulls raced out to a quick lead in front of 3,396 fans with a pair of runs in the opening frame. But the reigning league champions pulled even in the fourth with two scores before Sinon grabbed a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the same inning.

The Lions plated two runs in the eighth to taste their first lead of the game. However, Cheng tagged Yueh-Ping Lin for his fourth long ball of the season an inning later to cap the comeback win.

Yu-Chieh Shen (4-3) picked up his fourth win of the year, while Lin (2-4) was charged with the loss.

The Elephants, which outhit the second half front-runner 13-5, broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the sixth. Trailing 3-1 heading into the ninth, the Bears plated a pair of scores to send the game into extra-innings. But the Brother franchise struck paydirt in the 12th to claim the narrow victory.
