Orlando Roman yesterday tossed seven scoreless innings to pick up his third win of
the season and gave the Brothers Baseball Club a 2-0 triumph over front-runners Lamigo Monkeys at the Taichung Intercontinental Baseball Stadium.
The result helped the Brothers win the series by taking two-out-of-three games between the two sides since Friday.
Roman got the better of his opposition, starting left-handed pitcher Wang “Pretty Sister” Yi-cheng, as Roman went through seven frames to strike out eight and yielded only two hits to silence the simian batters.
Roman upped his record to 3-2, and lowered his ERA from 3.24 in the previous game to 2.77.
Lamigo starter Wang struck out for eight and pushed his record to 3-5.
The game’s Most Valuable Player award went to Brothers’ reserve catcher Huang Chun-sheng, who had three hits and drove in both runs in the contest.
“The three hits I got was also my career high. I really enjoyed it tonight and hope to stay healthy, with no more injuries to keep me out of action,” Huang said after the game. [FULL STORY]
