Tabata And Cedeno Hitting Nicely

Toros del Este  1,  Leones del Escogido  0  —  
SS Pedro Ciriaco’s RBI single in the 2nd inning took care of all the scoring in the game.  The single followed a pair of walks.  Pitchers ruled the rest of the game, scattering 5 more hits for Los Toros and 5 for Los Leones.  Both teams had scoring opportunities, but neither could capitalize.

MEXICAN PACIFIC LEAGUEVenados de Mazatlan  5,  Yaquis de Obregon  4  —  After losing to Los Yaquis 5-2 in the first game, Los Venados had a 5-0 lead going into the bottom of the 7th of Game 2.  Rogelios Noris came in as a defensive replacement in right field, though he didn’t have anything to do with the fact that Los Yaquis rallied for 4 runs on 4 singles and 2 walks.  Former Pirate Jeff Salazar also got into the game, as a pinch-runner for Obregon in that inning, but Salazar was left stranded on third base, with another runner on second when a pop up finally ended the game.  

Sydney Blue Sox 4,  Adelaide Bite  0  —  Sydney starter Craig Anderson (Orioles) held the Bite to just 2 hits over his 8 innings of work, which also included just one walk, and 8 strikeouts.  He retired the first 13 Bite batters in order, before giving up a double and the walk in the 5th inning, but left those runners stranded.  The Bite eked out another single in the 6th, but then 7 more batters were retired in order.  When Anderson was relieved to begin the bottom of the 9th, the first Bite batter of the inning singled, and two outs later LF Quincy Latimore doubled, but a ground out ended the game.  The Blue Sox scored 2 runs in the 2nd on a double, a single, a wild pitch, and an RBI ground out, then scored 2 in the 6th on two doubles and a single.
