Taiwan made its first win at the 2023 Asia Professional Baseball Championships in Tokyo, beating Australia 6-0 in extra innings. The victory comes after a painful defeat at the opening game against Japan, where they lost 0-4 against the home team.
The first nine innings of the game were scoreless. The breakthrough for Taiwan came at the top of the 10th thanks to Chen Chieh-hsien, who struck a two-run single. Later, with the bases loaded, Lin Ching-kai hit a grand slam, pushing the score to 6-0 and shutting down Australia. Taiwan’s next game is on Saturday evening against a formidable opponent: South Korea.
