Chen Chun-Hsiu was the hero with four hits for Rakuten
It wasn’t the most welcoming start to Ryan Carpenter’s CPBL career the first time around, but the second time was the charm for him in the Rakuten Monkeys’ 3–2 win over the CTBC Brothers.
Rakuten Monkeys 3, CTBC Brothers 2 (10)
W: Wang Yao-Lin (1–0)
L: Wu Chun-Wei (0–1)
