Asian Games Day 2 Results

Game 4: China 15, Mongolia 0 - 5 Innings Boxscore

After being shut out by Japan yesterday, China released their frustration by crushing Mongolia. They scored 15 runs and pitched a no-hitter! DASHZEVEG Munkhbat gave up 10 walks and 7 earned runs in 3 innings against the Chinese. He was also batting second which shows you how uneven the match up was. Chinese left fielder Shin Yi Yang went 2-3 with 4 RBIs and shortstop Lu Yi also went 2-3 with 3 RBIs. Six pitchers gave up a total of 1 walk and 12 strikeouts. Total domination today for team China, but the real challenge will be against Pakistan on Thursday.

Game 5: Japan 9, Pakistan 1 Boxscore

You know what?! Not only did Pakistan played a full 9 inning game against Japan, they also scored first and had an inning lead! But it was a slippery slope after the first inning as they gave up at least a run every inning. ZAWAR Muhammad Sumair was the star of the game for Pakistan, as he went 2-4 with a run scored. On the Japanese side, MORIYASU Reo pitched 4 innings giving up only a run with 8 strikeouts. You got to give it to Pakistan for keeping it together(somewhat!) against Japan. They'll face Mongolia tomorrow (praying for Mongolia).

Game 6: Chinese Taipei 13, Thailand 1 - 7 Innings Boxscore

Taiwan continues their reign of terror against lower tier teams. They stomped Thailand by scoring all 13 runs in the first two innings. Thailand did a good job shutting out their offense by putting up zeros in the next four innings. Good effort by NADEE Siraphop, who stopped most of the bleeding by giving up 1 earned run in 3.1 innings of relief. Chicago Cubs prospect Pin Chieh Chen stays hot by going 3-4 with 2 RBIs and Baltimore Orioles prospect Chih Hsien Chiang went 2-4 with 3 RBIs. 22 year old Chun Lin Kuo with 4 innings giving up an earned run with 6 strikeouts.

Two days of baseball and it's already almost over. I'm looking forward to the Taiwan vs. Korea match. We'll get to see how good the talent pool is in both countries. Japan is already qualified for the semi final, so they can relax a bit. Anyway, more baseball to come tomorrow! Have a great day!
