The Fubon Guardians’ Mike Loree have demonstrated to everyone why he is the best pitcher in the CPBL, as the winner of the 2016, 2017 Pitching Triple Crown have retired the first 21 Uni-Lions batters he faced last night.
21 Up, 21 Down for The Uni-Lions
With great command along with his infamous forkball as the out pitch, Loree cruised through the first seven innings with only 67 pitches while struck out six in the process.
Perfect Game Broken by 鄧志偉 (Teng Chih-Wei)
Loree’s perfect game was ended by the Uni-Lions 鄧志偉 (Teng Chih-Wei) in the eighth inning, as he hit one past the Guardians infield defense on a 2-2 count.
After the Teng’s single, Loree gave up another two more hits to the Uni-Lions and loaded up the bases. However he was able to settled down and escaped the bases-loaded jam by striking out 黃恩賜 (Huang En-Tzu).

Loree finished the night with eight scoreless innings (seven of those were perfect), while gave up three hits in the eighth and two hits in the ninth.
“The last time I came close to a no-hitter was back in 2008 playing in the San Francisco Giants system, and I hope I don’t have to wait another ten years for the next time,” said the Guardians ace Mike Loree.
