Game 1 Went Pretty Damn Well

Backed by excellent pitching and their opponents jet lag, the CPBL all-stars beat the Dodgers 5-2 in game 1 of their exhibition series last night. Starter Lin Ying-Chieh threw four shutout innings while Lin Yueh-Ping picked up the save as the Dodgers were held to just three hits. The offence was led by Pan Wu-Hsiung and Wang Sheng-Wei, with each batting in two runs. Tainan product Hu Chin-Lung finally got the Dodgers on the scoreboard in the eighth inning with a two run single.

With the CPBL winning the game and the local boy coming through for the MLB club, it turned out to be an ideal series start for fans of Taiwan baseball. I just have one question: why the hell were the Dodgers wearing their home whites?
