Chinese Taipei doubled up the NWAACC USA team in Sunday's early game at the World Baseball Challenge to keep pace with the Cubans.
The Chinese Taipei National Team beat the USA 8-4 at Citizen Field. Chi Hung Hsu gave the Chinese Taipei a 4-0 lead after four innings when he banged a solo home run out of the park.
Coming off an emotional 3-2 defeat Saturday night to Cuba, the USA battled back with a pair of runs in each the sixth and seventh innings, but Chinese Taipei put the game out of reach with two runs in the bottom of the seventh to complete the scoring.
Roeman Fields led the USA offensively, going two for four at the play with a walk and a solo homerun to lead off the sixth inning. USA right fielder Ty Holm was also two for four at the plate, while Hsu was two for three with a walk for Chinese Taipei.
With the win Chinese Taipei improves to 4-1, while the USA falls to 1-4. The only USA win came on opening day against Canada, who they'll face again today, 3 p.m. at Citizen Field.
