Fubon Guardians (4-4) at Rakuten Monkeys (5-4)

Projected Starters

LHP Shih Peng-Cheng (4-6, 6.47 ERA) vs. RHP Lisalverto Bonilla (6-3, 4.41 ERA)

Game Preview

It's an interesting pitching matchup Thursday, as Shih-Peng Cheng has traditionally been a better pitcher than what he's shown this season. The southpaw was an impressive 11-8 with a 3.48 ERA in 2019, but he's been in much poorer form this season and has an elevated 1.88 WHIP. Meanwhile, Bonilla has been very solid as his record indicates, but he does have a mediocre 18.7 strikeout rate.

The infielder is slashing an outstanding .379/.410/.588 with 36 extra-base hits (13 doubles, three triples, 20 home runs), 64 RBI and 12 stolen bases. There isn't anything Li can't do as a hitter, and even though he's been quiet lately, his upside is demonstrated by the fact he recently scored between 22 and 40 Dream11 points in six games during an eight-game stretch.   

Chen Chen-Wei, Monkeys- Chen came through in strong fashion Wednesday as one of our recommendations,
