Fubon Guardians vs. Uni Lions -Prediction
Fubon is coming off a tough 15-6 defeat to the league’s best Rakuten Monkeys. Rakuten was up 6-0 early, but the Guardians were able to find their way back to a tied score at six. Rakuten then scored nine unanswered runs and Fubon earned their tenth loss of the season. Fubon currently sits in last place in the standings, but they have two games in hand on the Uni Lions, who are ahead of them. A win for Fubon in this game will swap them and Uni in the standings.
Uni earned the day off on Thursday, which was certainly needed. Uni has played the most games in the CPBL out of any team with 18. In their last game, Uni was dismantled by the Chinatrust Brothers, 18-8. Uni is now on a four-game losing streak heading into this game, with two of those losses coming to these Fubon Guardians. It seems that Uni is on a downward spiral after getting to a .500 record not too long ago. It should be noted that in the CPBL you are allowed to sign four foreign players, but Uni decided to only sign three. This could mean that an opening for Manny Ramirez could be in the future plans for Uni, but only time will tell.
