 rinkiutsuritoshu (Kia Tigers) of the side hand right arm went up Korea without the back to starting mound for championship. So that was the Chinese Taipei batting order where seven L hitters forms a line, but Sun Dong-yol director (former Chunichi Dragons pitcher) tells, "thought that rather is effective for the left hitters as there is change-up good at all", change-up that has a slight sinker of the left hitters was low outside, and was fixed effectively. It was Sun Dong-yol director "who was five or six times of plans" at first, but we threw 109 pitches of seventh inning and kept out the Chinese Taipei batting orders by nice pitching with more than of expectation called two hits of no Run.
