CPBL: Brother Elephants Keep Winning

TAIWAN – The Sinon Bulls plated five runs in the seventh inning to capture a 5-4 comeback win against the La New Bears Friday night at the Kaohsiung County Baseball Stadium.

The Bears drew first blood in the second on an RBI groundout by Yu Jin-deh, and went ahead 2-0 in the fifth on a run-scoring sacrifice fly off the bat of Chan Chih-yao.

Meanwhile, La New starter Chang Chih-jia silenced the Bulls’ lineup on three hits in six innings before running into major trouble in the seventh.

Lin Yi-chuan ignited the big inning with a leadoff solo drive, and Sinon chased Chang later in the inning with two outs. Chang Jien-ming drilled a two-run double to finish off the game-changing rally.

The Bears made things interesting with two scores in the bottom of the seventh to close the gap to 5-4. But, the Bears bullpen clinched the narrow win with two shutout innings.

Shoda Itsuki picked up his 12th win of the season, while Chang was pinned with the loss.


The Brother Elephants extended their winning streak to five games with a 10-6 victory against the Uni-President Lions Friday night at the Taipei County Baseball Stadium in Sinjhuang.

The Elephants racked up 11 hits off five pitchers with Cheng-min Peng leading the way with a 3-for-5 effort at the plate and one RBI.

The American pitching duo of Matt Perisho and Ryan Cullen continued their impressive late inning success on the mound.

Perisho, who scrapped a Lions scoring threat in the eighth, earned his league-best 20th hold of the year. Cullen retired the final three Lions batters to notch his ninth straight save.
