The EDA Rhinos win the 2016 Taiwan Series for their lone title as the team’s sale to Fubon will be finalized in three days. They trail Game 6 to the Chinatrust Brothers, 3 – 1, entering the 9th, thanks to a three-run blast by Chih-Hsien Chiang. Closer Hung-Wen Chen comes in to wrap it up but EDA gets four singles in the span of five batters to tie it, then veteran 1B Cheng-Min Peng makes a game-losing error on a grounder by Kun-Sheng Lin.
