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.

ELEPHANTS 10 – LIONS 6

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.
