Repeating as Taiwan Series winners, CTBC Brothers easily dispatched Rakuten Monkeys
Baseball World Cup : The CTBC Brothers did more than just successfully defend their 2021 championship; they also became the first team in CPBL history to repeat as Taiwan Series champions by being undefeated in both seasons.
Taiwan’s Second Largest City, TAICHUNG The defending champions, CTBC Brothers, swept the Taiwan Series after winning Game Four by a score of 3-2 against Rakuten Monkeys. The Brothers made CPBL history by being the first team to win consecutive titles without dropping a single game in the finals. Last year, the Brothers, led by rookie manager Wei-Chu Lin, swept the Lions. Lin is the first manager in CPBL history to go undefeated in the Taiwan Series, having done it in only his second season as a manager.
The Brothers got on the board first in front of the 20,000 spectators at Taichung Intercontinental Baseball Stadium in the bottom of the first on an RBI single by Kun-Yu Chiang. In the bottom of the second, Chien-Fu Liao hit a solo home run for the Monkeys to even the score.
Tung-Hua Yueh knocked out Yi-Cheng Wang, the starting pitcher for the Monkeys, after driving in the tying run in the bottom of the second, giving the Brothers a 2-1 lead. In the sixth inning, the Brothers tacked on an extra run to bring the score to 3-1.
Che-Yuan Wu, the starting pitcher for the Brothers, went seven innings, allowed five hits, two runs, and struck out six and walked one. The Monkeys scored the night’s second run in the eighth, but the Brothers’ closer Yen-Ching Lu got the last out with a strikeout on Yu-Hsien Chu to seal the championship.
This honor is well deserved after the two years of hard effort we have put in. In the postgame interview, Lin gushed, “To win the championship in front of our home crowd is beyond exciting.”
Following seven failed tries in eight seasons, Lin led the squad to victory in the Taiwan Series last year.
The Brothers’ nine championships put them in second place all-time in the CPBL, behind only the record-setting Lions and their 10 triumphs.
