After dropping the 1st game 15-7 against team Israel.  Team Taiwan will face Netherlands, with former CPBL Uni-Lions RHP Jair Jurrjens on the mount for team Netherlands.  Jair Jurrjens spent majority of his 2016 season in CPBL until he went on disabled list with groin strain and was released by the Lions in August. Jurrjens left Taiwan with the record of 5.38 ERA, 1.58 WHIP, 90.1 IP with the ERA+ of 110.

This Taiwanese lineup will know what to expect from the former Uni-Lions.  Fielding has been one of Jurrjens major problem in the 2016 season.  It is also worth noting Team Taiwan’s back-up catcher 林琨笙 (Lin Kun-Sheng) is .357/.400/.429 over 14 at bats against Jurrjens in 2016.  Now the question is, will this Taiwanese management team able to utilise that against Jurrjens in a must win game 2 tonight?
