“As the only few veterans on the team, I’ve been thinking about how to motivate this group of young kids.  And I’ve come to a conclusion that I just need to lead by example, that’s the best way to lead and motivate them” Said the G4 MVP Chang Chih-Hao.

“The key factor in winning this Playoff Series is our pitching staff, they really stepped up and did a great job for us. It doesn’t matter we start the Taiwan Series with 1 game disadvantage, we’ll win the Taiwan Series for the fans”  – Brothers skipper Cory Snyder

G4 Playoff Series recap

Coming into Game 4 of this Playoff Series facing elimination, Uni-Lions started their offense early with 潘武雄 (Pan Wu-Hsiung) solo shot in the 1st inning.

However, Lions starting pitchers 施子謙 (Shih Tzu-Chien) was unable to keep the Brothers batters under control, gave up 5 earned runs in only 2 innings of work.  With 張志豪 (Chang Chih-Hao) 2 RBI double and 林明杰 (Lin Ming-Chieh) 3-run shot.  Brothers fought back ferociously with 5-1 lead over Lions.

With Brothers starting pitcher Rick Teasely having some command issues in the top of 3rd.  Lions was able to reduced the gap to 4-5, first scoring a run on fielder’s choice and Pan Wu-Hsiung followed up with a 2-run homer, his 2nd homers of the night against Rick Teasley.

The nightmare did not end for the Lions, as their pitching staff continues to struggle.  With a few defensive errors along with a string of hits, which includes 張志豪 (Chang Chih-Hao)’s 3-run blast.  Brothers further extended their lead 11-4 after the bottom of 4th inning.

Despite Lions’ effort to make a late comeback, which they managed to reduced the gap to 7-11, but what’s done is done, it’s too late for the Lions.  Brothers have won game 4 of the Playoff Series and will face Lamigo Monkeys in the Taiwan Series (Best-of-Seven) on the 28th of October.
