Inspired by the recent MLB event, where George Springer collects 6 hits in a single game. Let us dial back the clock to 2015, and take a closer look at the Lamigo Monkeys’ 林智平 (Lin Chih-Ping) CPBL record breaking six-hit game.
New CPBL Record: Six Hits in Nine Innings
On the night of March 27th 2015, it was another typical high scoring CPBL game where the Monkeys defeated the Brothers 11 to 1.
But what makes it so special was the Monkeys’ 林智平 (Lin Chih-Ping) became the first players in the CPBL history to collects six hits in a single game.
Lin finished the night 6-for-6 at the plate with 2 runs scored and 3 RBI. In a way, you can say Lin Chih-Ping had single-handedly defeated the Chinatrust Brothers. As the Brothers only had 5 scattered hits with 1 run scored. (Lin had 6 hits and 3 RBI)
