The Lamigo Monkeys yesterday took Game 1 of the Taiwan Series with an
8-6 win at the Taoyuan International Baseball Stadium, scoring six runs on two home runs in a big rally in the fourth inning. The Brothers Baseball Club attempted to fight back late in the game, but could not overcome the deficit.
More than 19,000 fans witnessed hosts the Monkeys take the first victory in the CPBL’s best-of-seven championship finals against their fierce rivals, who were previously known as the Chinatrust Brothers.
The Brothers are seeking revenge, as this year is a rematch of last year’s Taiwan Series, when the Lamigo Monkeys dusted off the Brothers in five games 4-1, while the Monkeys will try to win the title for the second year straight. [FULL STORY]
