Chang Tai-shan rallies Bulls past Bears


The Cobras would strike again in the fourth inning, this time on designated hitter Cheng Jing-yi's (鄭景益) single to shallow right, which barely scored the runner from second.

The 2-0 lead stood until the end as Cobras lefty Lin Ying-jeh (林英傑) blanked the first-half champs with nine unbelievable innings of pinpoint control and blazing fastballs.

Lin's impressive showing provided some level of comfort for baseball fans, because he had not been particularly strong since being selected to the national team that is set to compete in the upcoming Athens Olympics.

His eight strikeouts for the game boosted his league-best total to 134. That's 21 more than Elephants veteran Yokota Hisanori.
