Rain disrupts game 4 of the Taiwan Series again


TAIPEI, Taiwan — Game 4 of the Taiwan Series between the Brother Elephants and Sinon Bulls scheduled for Thursday in Sinjhuang City, Taipei County, was postponed due to heavy rain, according to Taiwan’s Chinese Professional Baseball League (CPBL).

The potential series clincher, originally scheduled to be played Wednesday, had been rescheduled for Thursday in Sinjhuang. The Elephants are seeking to complete a sweep of the Bulls in the best-of-seven series and thereby win the seventh CPBL title in the team’s history.

American Jim Magrane, winning pitcher of Game 1 of the series, will start for the Elephants, while Dominican left-hander Juan Pena will take the mound for the Bulls.

Games 5, 6 and 7 would be played in Taoyuan County Sunday and Kaohsiung County Monday and Tuesday if necessary, announced the CPBL.
