Home runs helped the Chinatrust Brothers complete a three-game sweep of the
Uni-President Lions and claim first-place in Taiwan’s Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL) second-half table.
In the weekend’s other match, the visiting Lamigo Monkeys took two out of three in the series against the EDA Rhinos at Kaohsiung’s Cheng Ching Lake Baseball Stadium. Lamigo infielder Kuo Yen-wen saw his record hitting streak stopped at the series opener on Friday when he went zero-for-four on the night.
A new CPBL record of hitting home runs in 11 consecutive games was set by the Brothers, who will look to extend the streak in contests this week.
