Taibei Brother Elephants at Guangzhou Fire

GUANGZHOU – Taibei won its fifth straight game, bursting suddenly into first place in the Southwestern League, by defeating Guangzhou on the road, 2-1.

The game was marked by god pitching on both sides. Taibei starter John Donaldson went seven innings, giving up only a single run on five hits and racking up nine strikeouts in his best start of the season. Nolan Ryan, Guangzhou’s starter, was equal to the task, giving up two runs on six hits in seven innings.

Taibei’s winning run came in the top of the sixth inning, as Michihiro Ogasaawra lined a base hit to right field with two outs. After Gabby Hartnett, the next batter, stuck out, the rains fell, and the game was delayed for another hour.

Taibei’s record is now 10-4, as they have won their last five in a row. Guangzhou fell to 8-8 and currently hold fifth place.
