Dubee Wins #3, Hit-Fest For Aragua

VENEZUELAN LEAGUE
Tigres de Aragua  7,  Aguilas del Zulia  4  —  
Each member of the Aragua lineup had at least one hit, for a total of 15.  SS Ronny Cedeno, 1B Hector Gimenez, CF Jorge Cortes, and C Raul Chavez each had 2 hits, and LF Lastings Milledge picked up one hit.  Cortes began the game with a double, then scored in the 1st inning. After a lead-off single in the 2nd inning, Chavez doubled, and an RBI ground out and Cedeno’s RBI single brought in two more runs.  Millege singled in the 3rd but was caught stealing.  The 6th inning began with Chavez reaching base on a fielding error.  Four singles followed, including ones by Cortes and Cedeno, to drive in two runs.  Gimenez walked to force in a run, and Milledge added a fourth run with a sacrifice fly.  Zulia scored on a 3-run homer in the bottom of the 6th, and a sacrifice fly gave Los Aguilas another run in the 8th.  

Caribes de Anzoategui  9,  Navegantes del Magallanes  8  —  Magallanes’ three runs in the bottom of the 9th were not enough to catch up to Los Caribes, who scored 7 of their runs in the last three innings.  Argenis Diaz came in to play shortstop in the top of the 8th, when Los Caribes scored 4 runs (3 runs on 2 homers, so not Diaz’s fault).  Diaz and his .186 batting average were pulled for a pinch-hitter in the bottom of the same inning.

MEXICAN PACIFIC LEAGUE
Mayos de Navojoa  6,  Venados de Mazatlan  0  —  
Los Mayos collected a pair of 2-run homers, scoring 3 runs in the 1st, one in the 2nd, and 2 runs in the 5th.  Los Venados were held to just 3 hits and 2 walks.  Along with a fielding error, they had one runner on base in 6 of the first 7 innings, but left them all on base.  RF Rogelios Noris had one of the walks, in the 7th inning.
