The Brothers Baseball Club yesterday leveled the CPBL Taiwan Series at one
win each after a see-saw battle, scoring two late runs to edge the Lamigo Monkeys 6-5 at the Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium.

Both teams again chose imported talent to start the game, with former Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Mike McClendon starting for the Brothers and former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Cesar Valdez for the Monkeys. [FULL STORY]
