standings after another quality start from US pitcher Zeke Spruill in their defeat of the Brothers Baseball Club 6-4 at the Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium yesterday.

Spruill, a former Arizona Diamondbacks player, held off the Brothers and gave the Monkeys a 6-3 lead when he was taken out in the seventh inning.

After surrendering a run in the opening frame, Spruill threw five scoreless innings before getting into trouble in the seventh, but had done enough to chalk up his third win of the season.
