CPBL: Uni-President Pounds Sinon Bulls

TAIWAN – Luther Hackman notched his first win since returning to the Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) earlier this month, and the Uni-President Lions pounded the Sinon Bulls 11-3 Friday night at Hsinchu Municipal Baseball Stadium.

The reigning CPBL champion jumped all over Sinon starter Ricardo Rodriguez in the first inning. The Dominican hurler allowed the first seven batters to reach safely on a pair of walks, four singles, and an error before getting yanked without registering an out.

The Lions stretched its lead to 8-0 off reliever Shen Fu-ren with a walk and two-run double to put the game out of reach early.

Meanwhile, Hackman turned in an effective 98-pitch outing that featured three runs on six hits with a pair of walks and five strikeouts.

Cheng Nai-wen went 3-for-5 with two RBIs to lead a Uni-President squad that scored 11 runs on as many hits to halt a two-game skid.


Aaron Rakers tied Sinon’s Shoda Itsuki for most wins in the CPBL this season, and the La New Bears routed the Brother Elephants at Taipei County Baseball Stadium in Sinjhuang.

Former major leaguer Chen Chin-fong drove in four runs with a pair of hits, and Tsai Jien-wei finished off a six-run rally in the sixth with a two-run single. The Bears racked up 15 hits off four different pitchers, while profiting from 14 walks to capture the lopsided win.

Rakers worked seven often shaky innings to pick up his 11th win of the year.
