3/21 Results

Bulls 7 - Bears 1: The Bears and Bulls opened their seasons in Kaohsiung with the Bulls running out easy winners. Itsuki Shoda  6 hits in 5 1/3 innings for the win while catcher Cheng Da-Hung had a great day, going 4 for 5 with an RBI and stolen base.

Attendance for Cheng Ching Lake Stadium was down quite a bit from last year's opener. One of the TV news programs I watched speculated that this was due to the young woman who threw the ceremonial first pitch. Apparently (forgive my bluntness) the girl they used last year had much bigger tits, thus bringing in more male fans. Classy.

Elephants 5 - Lions 8: The Lions got revenge for their opening day defeat thanks to a three run homer from Kao Kuo-Ching and a clutch triple from Kao Chi-Kang which also drove in three runs. All eight Lions runs were scored off imported pitchers, with Ryan Murphy and Tracy Thorpe giving up four each. A near capacity crowd of 12000 attended the first ever game at Taoyuan stadium.
