The Uni-President Lions completed an impressive three-game sweep of the
Chinatrust Brothers in northern Taiwan by topping the hosts 4-1 at the Taipei Tianmu Baseball Stadium last night.
Wang Ching-ming was rock solid in his sixth start of the season, tossing seven strong innings of one-run ball on six hits to lift the Cats past their foes.
The right-hander took a 3-0 shutout one out into the sixth, before serving up a solo blast to Chen Tzu-hao for the Brothers’ lone run of the game.
Equally impressive was setup man Kuo Hung-chih, who worked a quick eighth by retiring all three of the hitters he faced on eight pitches for his third hold of the year.
The former major league player has not given up a run in five appearances this season to maintain a perfect ERA of zero. [FULL STORY]
