Claggett Wins Again; Singh Reappears

Caneros de Los Mochis  4,  Venados de Mazatlan  0 —  
A throwing error by Mazatlan 3B Freddy Sandoval allowed 2 unearned runs to score for Los Caneros in the 4th inning.  Those combined with an earned run in the 4th and another in the 1st for Los Caneros.  Los Venados were held to just 5 hits, and even with 4 walks, they could not score.  LF Rogelios Noris dropped down a sacrifice bunt after a lead-off walk in the 3rd, but that runner was left stranded.  In the bottom of the 9th, Noris walked with 2 outs, but he was hit by the next batter’s batted ball as he was running to second base, and that out ended the game.

Indian pitcher Rinku Singh had been “reassigned” by the Canberra Cavalry prior to the beginning of the season, but he was “reassigned” again, onto the team’s active roster last weekend.  On the 20th, Singh pitched 2 innings for the Cavalry in their 3-1 loss to the Melbourne Aces in the first game of a double-header.  Singh gave up a single to the first batter he faced in the 6th inning, then erased him in a double play, and ended the inning with a ground out.  He had more trouble in the 7th, when he gave up a single and three walks, forcing in a run.  
Early this morning, Singh appeared again in the first game of a double-header, as Canberra again lost to Melbourne, 6-2.  The Aces had scored 2 runs in the bottom of the 1st on a 2-run homer.  The Cavalry tied the score in the top of the 4th on a solo homer and a walk and two singles.  Canberra starter Jun Hyeok Heo got into trouble in the bottom of the 4th, giving up a double and three home runs to give Melbourne a 6-2 lead.  Singh relieved Heo after the third homer, and he got a ground out to end the inning.  Then Singh pitched 2 more scoreless innings.  He worked around a double and a walk in the 5th, including a strikeout, and retired the side in order in the 6th.
