CPBL: Uni-President Beat La New Bears

TAIWAN – The Uni-President Lions snapped a five-game losing skid Wednesday night at Tainan with a 9-3 victory over the La New Bears in action from the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL).

Liu Fu-hao broke a 1-1 deadlock in the fourth with a two-run drive off La New starter Hsu Wen-hsiung. Jose Castillo added another two-run shot an inning later to seal the win.

Chen Chin-fong connected for his 20th home run of the season for the Bears with a solo blast to open the fourth, and newcomer Jacob Cruz slugged a pair of solo homers off the Lions’ Kao Jien-san and Hsu Yu-wei.

Lin Cheng-fong, who replaced injured starter Lee Wei-hua in the second, limited the Bears to one run and two hits in three plus innings to pick up his second win of the year.

Hsu lasted just 4 2/3 innings to lose his fourth game in seven starts against Uni-President this season.

ELEPHANTS 7, BULLS 6

The Brother Elephants capitalized on three errors by the Sinon Bulls in the ninth to pull out an improbable 7-6 squeaker at the Taipei County Baseball Stadium in Sinjhuang on Tuesday.

In a matchup that featured four different lead changes, the Bulls built a 4-0 lead after two innings before the Elephants stampeded for five unanswered scores.

Sinon’s Chen Chih-wei knotted the game in the sixth with an RBI single, and Lin Yi-chuen’s solo shot off Elephants reliever Wang Jing-li in the ninth gave the Bulls a slim 6-5 lead.

But the Elephants profited from three Bulls’ defensive blunders that led to two unearned runs in the bottom of the ninth to claim their fourth consecutive win.
