The Lamigo Monkeys continued their red-hot form and kept a firm grip on first in the
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.
New to the Lamigo club this year, the right-hander has found his groove to become a reliable force in the starting rotation.
