The red-hot Brothers Baseball Club continued their recent surge by downing
the Uni-President Lions 7-3 at the Taipei Tianmu Baseball Stadium last night for their fifth straight victory.
Fresh off an 11-7 slugfest against the Lamigo Monkeys the night before that stretched their winning streak to four, the men in the golden uniforms needed little time getting on the board, with Chang Chih-hao taking Lion starter Liao Wen-yang deep in the bottom of the first with a two-run blast to put his team 2-0 ahead.

After a scoreless third and fourth, the Lions finally broke through against Brothers starter Chiou Ping-rei in the fifth inning on the strength of three singles, but it was considered a moral victory for Chiou, who stranded two with an inning-ending strikeout to hold the Lions offense to a lone run in the inning.
